The Lansing Board of Water & Light is a municipally-owned public utility that provides safe, reliable and affordable utility products and services to around 100,000 electric and 58,000 water customers throughout the greater Lansing area.
Our roots go back to 1885, when Lansing citizens approved building a water system. Electricity was added to our list of utility services in 1892, and steam heat in 1919. Chilled water was added in 2001.
The Lansing Board of Water & Light is a community employer of choice with a small company feel. Employees truly believe in the company mission and excellence in customer service – whether the customer is the general public or coworkers serving in another department.
