Projects & Upgrades

SWL&P and its partners will be in many neighborhoods this spring and summer to upgrade natural gas, electric and water meters; pipes; and other utility equipment to ensure continued safe and reliable service.

Watch for:

  • Information from SWL&P for scheduling a time to perform equipment upgrades at your home or business.
  • SWL&P employees and contractors in neighborhoods. Employees and our contractor partners will wear highly visible identification, making them easy to recognize. Don’t see the ID? Feel free to ask.
  • Signs of activity in your neighborhood such as locator flags, paint on the ground and door hangers on doorknobs.
  • Construction work in roadways, boulevards and yards.

SWL&P’s parent company, ALLETE, has entered an agreement to be acquired by a partnership led by Canada Pension Plan Investment Board and Global Infrastructure Partners and start the process to become a private company.

This transaction will not change our operations, strategy or shared purpose and values, and it is business as usual for all of us at SWL&P. Learn more at
