Utility Accounts and COVID Information


During the upcoming weeks/months, Sherrill Power & Light will be starting to change out the old mechanical electric residential meters.  They will be starting with the Kenwood residences.  They will alert you when they arrive at your house by knocking on your door.  If you do not answer, they will go ahead and switch the meter out.  If when they arrive is not a good time, they will reschedule a time with you.  Due to this, you will experience a short power outage when this happens (approximately 5 minutes).  If you have any questions or concerns about this, please contact us at (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, Trevor Onyan and Matthew Flaherty.

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.
