Licking Rural Electrification

Licking Rural Electrification (LRE) provides safe, reliable electricity to 25,669 members in nine counties of Central Ohio. LRE owns, operates, and maintains 32 miles of transmission line, 2,955 miles of distribution lines, 20 substations, and three switching stations.

LRE has several programs that are designed to save the members’ investments in existing facilities. Our pole inspection program inspects and treats poles resulting in extended facility life and less outage times. In addition, maintenance and inspections of our underground facilities have also extended the life of some of our high voltage underground cables saving money for costly replacements.
