Community

Investing in the community

At LES, our commitment to community goes well beyond providing a safe, reliable and affordable supply of electricity. 

LES' 2019 payment in lieu of tax
$
13100000


The payment in lieu of tax, required by the city charter, represents 5 percent of the previous calendar year’s retail electric revenue from the cities LES serves. Lincoln Public Schools and local governments receive the payment from LES based on their proportionate share of property tax rates.

My dad said, ‘Go for the best job you can find and stick with it.’ I joined LES Vegetation Management in 1990 and worked my way from groundman to supervisor.

LES strives to hire the best people. If a four-year college is not your thing, check out the great community colleges. You can achieve a great career at LES with a two- or four-year degree.

Internet-connected thermostats provide convenience and comfort while helping customers save energy. By enrolling in LES Peak Rewards, customers can help the community delay the need for another generating resource and that benefits everyone.

I love that LES put this program together. It's so important to save energy and help the environment. And a little incentive back doesn't hurt at all. Thanks!

Working with a team that is fun, friendly, knowledgeable and caring is what makes LES a great place to work. It doesn’t matter how pressed we are to meet a deadline, we get our work done accurately, on time and with a laugh or two along the way.

A streetlight was installed almost at the end of my driveway and I love it. It lights up my front driveway, garage and house doors, car and all. I really sleep well now feeling secure from this light. I don’t know who was in charge to get this project done, but they did a great job. God bless.

Rachel has provided me with the most outstanding service each and every time I have called in. Whether it's checking the status of the cable-burying process or trying to get issues sorted, Rachel has been so kind, pleasant and willing to go the extra mile. She is an example of what quality customer service should be with her consistent, empathetic approach with your clients.

I just wanted to say thank you to Adam and Kayla today for making sure the branch that fell on the power line between the alley and my house after last night’s storm was taken care of today, as it was touching the ground. I received multiple calls from them both, and it was fixed when I came home after work. Thank you and stay safe!
