Founded in 1987, the Large Public Power Council (LPPC) is comprised of 27 of the nation’s largest public power systems that serve 30 million Americans, about 10 percent of the U.S. population. LPPC members are locally governed and directly accountable to consumers. We are not-for-profit and committed to reliability, affordability, and environmental stewardship for the consumers and communities we serve. LPPC advocates for policies that allow public power systems to build infrastructure, invest in communities, and provide reliable service at affordable rates.
LPPC members operate in 21 states and the territory of Puerto Rico and provide good paying jobs to more than 52,000 people across the U.S. LPPC customers pay some of the lowest rates for electricity in the country.
LPPC member utilities own and operate more 80,000 MW of generation and over 35,000 circuit miles of high-voltage transmission lines. Together, LPPC members control 90 percent of the public agency owned, non-federal, transmission investment in the nation.
LPPC members are committed to maintaining affordable rates, and public power customers enjoy some of the lowest power rates in the country. On average, customers served by LPPC members pay 10 percent less per kWh than the national average.
