Mission and background
Feb. 1, 1966, Lincoln Electric System was
formed, and a single utility began providing electric energy in and around
Lincoln, Neb. In November 1970, Lincoln voters approved formation of a
semi-autonomous administrative board of local citizens to oversee operations

Today, LES services approximately 200 square miles
within Lancaster County in Nebraska, including the cities of Lincoln,
Prairie Home, Waverly, Walton, Cheney and Emerald.
