Introduction
Nebraska Public Power District is Nebraska’s largest electric generating utility with a chartered territory including all or parts of 91 of the state’s 93 counties. It was formed on January 1, 1970, through the merger of the former Consumers Public Power District and Platte Valley Public Power and Irrigation District. The merger also included the assets of the Nebraska Public Power System.

A public corporation and political subdivision of the state, NPPD is governed by an 11-member Board of Directors popularly elected from NPPD’s chartered territory. The District’s revenue is primarily derived from wholesale power supply agreements with 52 towns and 25 public power districts and/or cooperatives that rely totally or partially on NPPD’s electrical system. NPPD also serves at retail 80 communities consisting of approximately 
89,000 customers. More than 5,100 miles of transmission lines make up the NPPD high-voltage, electrical grid system.

NPPD uses a mix of generating facilities to meet the needs of its customers. NPPD also purchases electric energy from the Western Area Power Administration and from Omaha Public Power District’s Nebraska City Unit 2  Power Plant.

Working in partnership with Nebraska’s public power districts, cooperatives and municipalities, NPPD helps serve more than an estimated 1 million Nebraskans with retail or wholesale electric power and energy-related services.
