While a majority of BWL’s customers are in the city of Lansing, the utility’s title may be a slight misnomer. It provides water or electricity (or both) to East Lansing, DeWitt and nine townships, including Delta, Lansing Meridian and Delhi.
Before joining the BWL in July 2007, General Manager J. Peter Lark, 62, was chairman of the Michigan Public Service Commission, appointed by Gov. Jennifer Granholm in 2003. In that role in 2006, he wrote a 48-page report for Granholm called “Michigan’s 21st Century Electric Energy Plan,” a roadmap for developing more renewables and energy efficiency.
Friday, Jan. 3 — “Heads will roll where appropriate” in the aftermath of the Lansing Board of Water and Light’s handling of the massive power outage last week, General Manager J. Peter Lark said today.
Frustrated, angered and disheartened Board of Water and Light customers had their three minutes Monday night to face those responsible for the utility’s handling of a nine-day old ice storm that left some of them still without power.
