Columbus, Neb. - Nebraska Public Power District (NPPD) is celebrating Public Power Week, Oct. 6-12, along with more than 2,000 other electric utilities that collectively provide electricity on a not-for-profit basis to 47 million Americans. 

Public Power Week is a national, annual event sponsored in conjunction with the American Public Power Association (APPA) in Washington, D.C.  APPA is the service organization for community- and state-owned electric utilities.

“Public Power Week is an opportunity for NPPD to talk to our customers about public power and how it works for Nebraska. We are dedicated to providing top-notch service and affordable rates,” said Tim Arlt, Nebraska Public Power District General Manager of Retail.

“We are proud to have served communities across Nebraska for decades, and to partner with communities to enhance economic development. It’s the public that makes public power work so well,” Arlt pointed out.

NPPD invites customers to stop in to one of its retail offices on Wednesday, October 9th between 9 a.m., and 3 p.m., to ask questions and to enjoy a cookie and coffee. NPPD retail offices are located in Aurora, Chadron, Kearney, McCook, Norfolk, O’Neill, Ogallala, Plattsmouth, Scottsbluff, and York.

“NPPD listens to the needs of our communities, and we continue to find ways to deliver electricity reliably, safely and with special attention to the environment,” Arlt said.
