Central Illinois Public Service Company is an electric streetcar holding company and power utility first organized in 1902. Streetcars, unlike cable cars, run on steel rails and are propelled by on board electric motors and draws power from overhead wiring. The first electric streetcars were actually tested in Richmond, VA a bit of information they shared with us when visiting our facility in Richmond, VA.

Central Illinois Public Service Company selected Power Systems & Controls’ rotary uninterruptible power supply to help protect their facility to insure the highest level of up time possible. They went with PS&C because of the long life of the equipment, the ability to request custom modifications specific to their unique application, and our attention to customer service.
