As a public power company, you aren’t just a customer, you are a customer-owner. When you pay your LES bill, every cent of every dollar goes to keep the power flowing.
- 46¢ goes to operation and maintenance of the electric system — covers the cost of producing electricity and delivering it to where you live, work and play.
- 29¢ goes to construction projects and debt payments — essential investments to keep our community’s power safe and reliable.
- 20¢ goes to payroll and benefits — helps us hire and keep talented employees.
- 5¢ goes to payment in lieu of taxes to local governments — our version of property taxes.
With LES, your money stays invested in the local economy. Local control. Low rates. High reliability. That is the power of public power.
