 A commitment to enhancing the lives o our customers is part o LPC’s roots. During its rst months o operation, Longmont’smunicipal utility increased generation andextended the times o day that customersreceived power. Tis enabled residents torun electric washing machines and stoves,activities that were previously restricteddue to the limited power available rom theormer electric provider.In 2011, LPC demonstrated the samecommitment to Longmont as it did 100years ago. Customers received highly reliableelectricity at some o the lowest rates inColorado, had access to a variety o energy eciency programs, and when surveyed,responded with a 97% overall satisactionrating. LPC also introduced a eet o environmentally riendly hybrid utility service vehicles that save on uel costs andrun more quietly.Te passage o ballot question 2A in November restored the community’sright to use City-owned inrastructure toprovide telecommunications services toresidences and businesses. Since that time,LPC has been exploring a range o optionsto leverage these existing resources in anongoing efort to enhance connectivity throughout the City.Trough continued community support,LPC’s legacy o responding to customerneeds is poised to continue.
