History

Superior Water, Light and Power Company (SWL&P) is a wholly owned subsidiary of ALLETE that sells electricity, water and natural gas in Superior, Wisconsin, and adjacent areas. Superior is located in northwestern Wisconsin across the St. Louis River from Duluth, Minnesota.

The Company has served the area since 1889 and currently provides service to 15,000 electric customers, 13,000 natural gas customers and 10,000 water customers.

By purchasing electricity at wholesale from our parent company, Minnesota Power, we are able to combine reliable service with rates that are among the lowest in the state and are competitive nationally. Having connections to two interstate pipelines for our natural gas system provides for cost-effective rates and enhanced system reliability. Utilizing Lake Superior as its source, our state-of-the-art water treatment system is able to provide high quality water with capacity to serve large industrial customers.
