“The Lansing Board of Water & Light is thrilled to provide the energy to power GM’s new battery plant in Delta Township. As GM reinvents the auto industry, BWL is proud that we’ll continue providing GM’s utility services, just as we’ve done for more than 100 years. The BWL’s unique position as a publicly owned, hometown utility provided the opportunity to collaborate with General Motors on this transformational project, which will provide unprecedented economic opportunity and growth to the greater Lansing area. I want to recognize the talented BWL workforce and commend our state, regional and local leadership that contributed to making this once in a generation opportunity a reality.”
