LCRA exists to serve the people of Texas. It's been that way since the state Legislature created us in 1934. We continue that legacy today by providing a multitude of vital services to our customers and communities.
To enhance the quality of life of the Texans we serve through water stewardship, energy and community service.
What we do
We produce and deliver electric power, manage the lower Colorado River and provide a reliable water supply, manage a public parks system and support community development.
LCRA is funded by revenue we generate, the vast majority of which comes from generating and transmitting electricity. A very small portion of our revenue comes from selling water. We do not receive state appropriations or have the ability to levy taxes.
