Roughly 5 years later, the company dropped the water plans andchanged its name to Louisville Gas. In1890, Louisville Gas bought stock in electric companies and acquired LouisvilleElectric Light. The two later combined in 1913 and Louisville Gas and Electricwas formed. In 1998, LG acquiredKU, Energy which is an electric company based out of Lexington, KY.
Upon purchase, they entered into a 25-yearagreement with Big River Electric generating facilities. These two transactions more than doubled the size of LGEnergy, employing roughly 1600 employees. LG is an equalopportunity employer.
LGcurrently has 1.3 million customers. They often use their social media platformto engage with customers and show the world what they are about. The last post,on Facebook and Twitter are of a group of employees in Puerto Rico helping withthe Hurricane efforts. I would be gratified to work for a company like LGbecause they are what exemplifies character throughout their organization. Theyare a customer first company which goes along way with people. Their contactinfo is plastered all over their social media sites in attempt you can’t reach themanother way.
