Community engagement

We are public power: Local people serving local people

At LES, our commitment to community goes well beyond providing an adequate, reliable and affordable supply of electricity. In fact, we strive every day to make our community a better place to live, work and go to school.

Education outreach programs

We offer numerous top-notch programs for schools in our service area, free of charge. LES subject matter experts will take students through fun and informative presentations! All programs are designed with Nebraska state standards in mind.

LES believes in the power of giving. That’s why our employees give their time, energy and monetary contributions to a wide variety of important causes in their communities. From food drives and science fairs to community service funds and elementary school outreach, you can find LES employees out improving lives in Nebraska’s communities.

Investing in the community

Through the years, we at LES have supported numerous health and service charities designed to enhance the quality of life in our communities. We’ve also distributed millions of dollars in energy-efficiency incentives, such as our Sustainable Energy Program.
