Louie the Lightning Bug

Louie the Lightning Bug, the BWL’s mascot, helps teach children the importance of electrical safety, including staying safe near power lines and how to use electrical outlets. He visits schools as part of BWL’s School Electric Safety Program, and also works with our Hometown Energy Savers® team to teach kids how to save energy. If you’d like Louie at your next community event, send us an email at
