Nebraska Public Power District, a public corporation and political subdivision of the State of Nebraska, is comprised of an integrated electric utility system including facilities for generation, transmission and distribution of electric power and energy.
Revenue is primarily derived from wholesale power supply agreements with 51 municipalities and 25 public power districts and/or cooperatives. NPPD also serves 80 Nebraska communities at retail, consisting of approximately 90,000 customers.
NPPD has a strong interest in Nebraska's economy. We have an economic development team dedicated to sustained economic growth in Nebraska. A team of economic development professionals have a proven record of assisting businesses and communities with expansion, retention or relocation projects in Nebraska.
NPPD sets rates solely on the cost of doing business. We work to contain costs each and every day without sacrificing the reliability of service to customers. As a result, our rates are consistently lower than the national average, with many electric customers on the East or West coast paying two times more than Nebraskans. Even on a regional basis, Nebraska's average electric rates are lower.
We believe a diverse generation mix serves our customers best. We use wind - when it is available. We use coal - which is reliable and helps keep electric rates low. We use water - one of the oldest forms of renewable energy. We use nuclear - which offers emission-free, around-the-clock power. We use natural gas - to complement the portfolio.
Dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for Nebraskans, NPPD's employees know the importance of outstanding service and high reliability. From call center representatives to power plant personnel, to the line technicians out in the field, we earn trust by delivering on our promise to be "Always there when you need us."
