Springfield Utility Board is an independently operated municipal electric and water utility governed by a locally-elected board. Serving 25+ square miles in and around the City of Springfield, Oregon (pop. 55,000), the utility offers its customers some of the lowest water and electric rates in the Pacific Northwest. SUB is a customer-owned community resource. Like other customer-owned utilities, SUB has a three-pronged mission: to provide excellent customer service, to keep rates low and affordable, and to support the community it serves. SUB achieves this because, unlike privately held utilities which look to provide profits to investors, SUB is owned by and responsible to the people it serves. And, because SUB is an independent agency, and not a department of the city, all of the rates paid go directly back into operating the utility.
SUB is a great place to work! Our employees are valued, respected and appreciated for their skills, knowledge and the diverse backgrounds that they bring to SUB. We’re proud of our talented employees and their accomplishments to make SUB the best and most cost-effective utility we can be!
Springfield is a family-friendly community located in the south Willamette Valley and nestled between the McKenzie and Willamette Rivers, both known for excellent fishing. The Eugene-Springfield metropolitan area is easily accessible by Interstate 5 and Oregon’s second largest airport. The region is home to several colleges, including the University of Oregon, and provides activities for a wide variety of interests, including performing arts, sports, and outdoor recreation.
