The City of Moreno Valley is home to more than 210,000 people and 4,500 businesses. A Southern California economic hub, Moreno Valley is the second largest city in Riverside County and leads the region in job growth. Strategically located in the center of Los Angeles, Palm Springs, San Diego and Orange County, Moreno Valley offers its residents easy access to the ocean, desert and mountains - some of the many activities that make up the iconic Southern California lifestyle.
In 2001, the Moreno Valley City Council established the Moreno Valley Utility (MVU) with the purpose of enhancing economic development in the City. As a "greenfield" utility, MVU provides electric service to new housing and business development, primarily located in undeveloped areas of the City.
