History

In 1909, Lubbock Electric Light & Power Company was the first attempt at forming a private power company in Lubbock but failed to get off the ground. Lubbock Light & Ice Company was formed in 1909 shortly after the demise of the first company and was somewhat more successful. But the expected profits couldn’t be realized and the company was sold in 1913 to two brothers who renamed the company Malone Light & Ice Company. That company also failed to prosper and on November 7, 1915 the Malone brothers sold their operations in Lubbock, Lockney, and Plainview to Texas Utilities Company. LP&L has served as the city’s municipal electric provider since 1917, when the citizens of Lubbock established LP&L to manage the electric power needs of the city. In November 2009 LP&L purchased Xcel Energy’s electricity distribution system within the city.

Lubbock Power & Light engages in the generation, distribution, and transmission of electricity. The company provides billing, collection, and meter reading services, as well as monthly utility statements for electric, water, sewer, solid waste, and storm water services to the customers of Lubbock. It facilitates customers to make payments through Web, phone, automated bank drafts, and the Western Union pay stations.
