Feb. 1, 1966, Lincoln Electric System was formed and a single utility began providing electric energy in and around Lincoln, Nebraska. In November 1970, Lincoln voters approved formation of a semi-autonomous administrative board of local citizens to oversee operations of the not-for-profit, customer-owned utility.
For over 50 years, LES employees have been proud to power the many homes, businesses and governmental properties throughout Lincoln and the surrounding area. As one of the nation’s most efficient electric utilities, our approximately 500 employees are committed to keeping electricity safe, reliable and at the lowest possible cost.
You may not think of us every day, but we think of you.
