Scheduled Power Outages May 29 & June 5
The Sherrill-Kenwood Power & Light district will experience two scheduled power outages on May 29 and June 5 from 7am-12pm (noon). The power outages are necessary so that National Grid can make clearances for Sherrill Power & Light to do much needed repairs and maintenance, and then necessary reconnections. In the event that weather prohibits National Grid from performing either of the scheduled outages we will notify customers of the new scheduled date(s). We know this will be an inconvenience and are giving this notice so that people can plan and make arrangements. The work is absolutely necessary to prevent further and longer outages. If you have any questions, please feel free to call the Sherrill Power & Light Department, (315) 363-0780.

About The Power and Light Department

The Sherrill Power & Light is led by Jim Whitcombe, the superintendent, who manages the city-owned electrical distribution department with line-crew members Scott Niles, Mike Ross and Trevor Onyan.

The Power & Light Utility Board meets the 2nd & 4th Mondays of each month at 3:30pm at City Hall.

The City of Sherrill’s municipal utility was formed in 1977.  Prior to that time, it was a privately owned utility (owned by Oneida Ltd.).  The utility currently features: attractive low rates, a talented and dedicated work force, highly reliable service, minimal debt, outstanding customer service, and extensive community visibility.  Low cost bulk power supply is obtained through a long-term partnership agreement with the largest State-owned utility in the United States, the New York Power Authority.  Sherrill’s municipal utility is owned by the City of Sherrill.  Its operation is completely self-sufficient; its funding comes from the sales of electricity, not through the use of local property taxes or any other sources of revenue. The utility is overseen by a three-member board – appointed by the City Commission.
