Lodi Utilities Celebrates 110th Anniversary

Lodi Milestone

Lodi Utilities, Lodi’s locally owned, not-for-profit electric, water, and wastewater utility, celebrates its 110th anniversary this year.

Lodi Utilities is a proud member-owner of WPPI Energy, a not-for-profit wholesale energy provider and joint action agency. The utility’s milestone anniversary was recognized at an awards luncheon during WPPI Energy’s annual conference in September. Lodi Utilities, representatives Julie Ostrander, Peter Schmitz, and Ann Groves Lloyd accepted a token of esteem on behalf of the utility.

“I’d like to extend my congratulations and appreciation to Lodi Utilities for 110 years of service to the Lodi community,” said Mike Peters, president and CEO of WPPI Energy.

The utility was founded in 1907 by the citizens of Lodi. It has remained a public power utility since that time, and utility employees continue to be guided by the principles of local ownership and control, keeping revenue in the community, providing first-rate customer service, and making a positive impact in the community through volunteer and outreach efforts.

“Working for a local utility that’s owned by the community we serve gives us a much bigger reason to care about the work we do. We also live in this community; it’s our home. We want to be a part of making it great,” said James Ness, Mayor.

“Anniversaries are a great time to reflect both on what has brought us to this point and where we want to go in the future,” said Ness.
