Nebraska’s electric rates for typical industrial customers are 27.6 percent less than the U.S. average and are among the lowest of the 48 contiguous states. A statewide grid system with regional interconnections assures reliability of service and adequacy of supply. Nebraska is also the only 100% public power state in the nation. Not-for-profit public power’s success is measured by how much money stays within the community through low rates and not by how much goes out to shareholders. Millions of dollars are invested annually to maintain and upgrade Nebraska’s electrical infrastructure which translates into reliable service for those served.
