The City of Elizabeth City has seventeen (17) generator sites with a total of twenty one (21) generators, which are used to reduce the City's peak demand. The generators are also used for emergency backup during power outages due to severe storms. The generators supply emergency power to the City's facilities, such as the Waste Plant, Water Plant, Wellfield Pumps, City Hall, Fire Stations, Garage and the Albemarle Jail. There are also other generators located throughout the City.
