Lubbock Power & Light Press Release

Press Release from LP&L:

Lubbock Power & Light Director Paul Thompson formally submitted his resignation to City Manager Bob Cass earlier today.

Mr. Thompson has served in that capacity for the last five years. Thompson, a native of Lubbock , graduated from Texas Tech University in 1983 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mechanical Engineering. Prior to returning to Lubbock, he was employed by General Electric, where he sold power generation equipment in international markets.

“It has been an honor and privilege to have worked with 250 of the most dedicated employees in the City,” said Thompson. “I sincerely appreciate all of their hard work and loyal service. It was their hard work and dedication that made the utility the number one choice in Lubbock . I am also very proud of the tremendous contribution LP&L has made to the city. LP&L has transferred more than 40 million dollars to the City’s General Fund in the last five years.”

“We are going to miss Paul” said Electric Utility Board Chairman Marciano Morales. “Under his direction, the municipal utility has grown to 73% market share in Lubbock after gaining more than 10,000 new customers during that time.”

“I am pleased the City Council recognized Paul by naming a substation in his honor,” said Board member Dr. Ken Jones. “It is appropriate because he has made significant technical improvements. The system is better for Paul having been here. It is much more reliable than it was in 1998.”
