LES discussing service regulations, rate opportunities, solar options at public meeting

LINCOLN — Lincoln Electric System invites customers to discuss updates to the LES service regulations, proposed new rate opportunities and new virtual net metering options at its next public meeting 6-7 p.m. May 31, 2018, at the Walter A. Canney Service Center (2620 Fairfield St.).

News Release Excerpt:

  • LES will review modifications to its service regulations, the rules for acquiring service from LES and governing customer and staff interactions.
  • Four new proposed commercial rates or rate riders are on the meeting agenda as well. Two are aimed at bringing new businesses to Lincoln or expanding existing businesses. The Market Energy Rate would attract very large customers, including big businesses in the process of choosing sites for new facilities, while the Economic Development Rider incentivizes new and existing customers adding commercial or industrial load with a discount credit on capacity charges for up to five years.
  • Finally, new options in LES’ Virtual Net Metering program — part of its community solar project — will be detailed.
