About Us

City Light & Power (CLP) engineers, constructs, finances and operates power distribution infrastructure systems for customers all over the United States. Developing utility solutions is what we do.

45 Years Developing Utility Solutions

Since our founding as Simmons Electrical Corporation 45 years ago, we have worked hard to grow our company by remaining laser-focused on the single most important aspect of our business — our customers. We have thrived because of our unwavering companywide dedication to set the industry standard for customer service. This dedication to our customers took us to the next stage of our growth 18 years after our founding, when we rebranded as City Light & Power, Inc.

From the first ever public-private partnership for municipal street lighting in the United States, CLP has grown into a full-service utility infrastructure company that serves U.S. military installations, municipal customers, energy infrastructure developers and electric utilities and co-ops across the U.S.

From 1990 forward our company’s operational focus has been to own, develop, upgrade, construct and maintain overhead and underground high voltage distribution systems, street lighting systems and power generation facilities.

Technology Can't Replace Superior Customer Service

As times change, customers come to us with new ideas and new needs. CLP has built an unparalleled reputation for listening carefully to our customers’ needs and for working alongside our customers as partners. In this way, we have been able to create highly innovative engineering solutions and construct, operate, maintain and finance infrastructure projects. Our goal is to ensure each project comes in on time and on budget. We are not a “change order shop.”

During our more than four decades of electrical distribution infrastructure development, we’ve benefited from major advances in electronics and computer technologies. Many of these have boosted precision and increased efficiency. They help us do the work faster, many times at a lesser cost. Through all these changes, one thing has remained constant for City Light & Power. We are still 100 percent focused on surpassing our customers’ expectations. When you look at CLP you will see a group of innovative and dedicated professionals who look forward to exceeding your vision, no matter what it is.
