The Palau Public Utilities Corporation (PPUC) is a public corporation established to manage and operate the electrical power and the water and wastewater systems of the Republic of Palau.
Comprised of seven board members appointed by the President with the advice and consent of Senate, the board of directors leads the affairs and exercises the corporate powers of PPUC.

As the sole energy and water provider for the Republic of Palau, the Palau Public Utilities Corporation (PPUC) embraces a new era for our islands.
Less than a decade ago, the villages in Babeldaob and the outer states of the Republic had limited hours of electricity and water. As the integration of technology into Palauan society increased the demand for the electricity and water, PPUC invested millions into the utilities infrastructure, providing access to electricity and water and 24-hour service to Palauan communities from Kayangel State all the way to Angaur State. As the local population continues to spread throughout Babeldaob, PPUC must continue to increase the utilities infrastructure to accommodate the demand. As continued reliability of service to our customers remains a priority, quick response to emergencies lessens the inconvenience of power and water outages.
Moreover, PPUC recognizes the importance of conservation. As Palau is an island nation whose economic and social well-being is reliant on a sustainable way of life, we encourage our customers to conserve energy and water whenever possible. Innovation today, for a cleaner tomorrow, PPUC will soon begin to research and implement alternative renewable and cost efficient energy sources, such as solar and hydro power, and thereby reflecting the savings back to our customers. Additionally, PPUC has begun researching on ways to provide cost effective clean water for all its customers.
Adhering to our open door policy, we welcome your comments, suggestions and feedback, so that we may better serve you as Palau’s utilities provider.
