Right community, right utility

We’re more than your average electric service provider. We are a public power utility — neighbors, family and friends doing what’s best for our neighborhood.

We don’t just say it. We do it.

For over 50 years, we’ve helped local businesses flourish by offering some of the nation’s most reliable service and lowest rates. We take pride in having a reliability of service rating of 99.99 percent for more than 15 years in a row, and LES’ commercial and industrial rates consistently rank among the most affordable in nationwide surveys.

We collaborate with businesses on site location, construction and infrastructure, but it doesn’t stop there. Once here, businesses have a dedicated LES liaison to offer personalized, quality service. 

As a community-owned electric service provider, we are dedicated to the prosperity of the communities we serve. Beyond offering low rates and dependable service, we give back to our communities and help companies expand or relocate. We’re always here to help.

We like to think of the Lincoln area as a forever home. Come grow with us!

Power to sustain

We’re proud of the culture of sustainability we’ve created in our 50-plus years of serving the Lincoln area, and it’s part of why we stand tall within the industry.

LES' focus on sustainability is visible throughout LES, from our power resource mix to our wide array of customer programs to help make a greener today and a cleaner tomorrow.
