WHAT IS IT? In America today, 2,000 public power utilities provide reliable, low-cost power to 48 million people – that’s 1 in 7 electricity customers.

Public power brings a number of other important benefits to customer-owners, including public accountability, decision-making at the local level, and investment back into the infrastructure, as there are no stockholders.

To find out more about Nebraska public power utilities, visit the Nebraska Power Association. Nebraska is the only state in the country where its residents are served entirely by public power utilities.
