The history of Edmonton's power company is closely connected to the history of the city itself. In fact, it existed before Edmonton was incorporated as a town. A constant throughout the century has been the utility's drive to be on the leading edge of technological innovation. Candles to Kilowatts traces the progression from a small light and power company that provided service to a seven-block stretch of downtown Edmonton after sunset to the present-day EPCOR Utilities.
