NPPD, Nebraska’s largest electric utility, is a public corporation and political subdivision of the state of Nebraska. NPPD and its partners work closely on many issues to bring the best, energy-related services possible to Nebraska’s electric consumers at affordable rates. As the only wholly public power state in the nation, Nebraska utilities have a unique relationship and a common purpose: to provide low-cost, reliable service with local control. Initiatives between NPPD and its partners ensure the advantages of public power are brought to all Nebraskans.
