Power for the People...By the People
Lane-Scott Electric was founded in 1941 as part of a National movement to provide electricity to rural areas. The initial charter was organized by J.A. Niedens, Charles Bretz, R.L. Harper, Ray Terwilliger, Charles Strobel, R.O. Preusch, Carl A. Greenburg, O.J. Unruh, and D.W. Steward.
Lane-Scott Electric's Mission is to provide safe, excellent service for our members.
Currently LSEC serves roughly 2,650 voting members by providing electricity to over 6,000 homes, businesses, agricultural and farming facility meters connected to 2,044 miles of line spanning throughout our eight county service area.
American Consumer Satisfaction Index
As a member owned cooperative, we have a high standard of transparency with our members and communities served. In the summer of 2020, Lane-Scott Electric outsourced a third party to conduct a member satisfaction survey. As part of the survey, an ACSI index was calculated to give an industry standard rating. We were very pleased with the high score of 89, above the Touchstone Energy Cooperatives, all Cooperatives, Industry Owned Utilities (IOUs), and Municipal Utility Companies averages.
