As a publicly-owned utility and a political subdivision of the State of Nebraska, NPPD is governed by a Board of Directors elected by the people they serve. Our chartered service territory is vast, including all or parts of 84 of Nebraska's 93 counties. NPPD was formed on Jan. 1, 1970, when Consumers Public Power District, Platte Valley Public Power and Irrigation District (PVPPID) and Nebraska Public Power System merged to become who we are today.
NPPD is grounded in serving Nebraska's energy needs. We are respectful of the rich public power history in the state, yet we are mindful that the state's energy future is being defined by what we do each and every day.
We believe being a good neighbor means making the lives of those around us better. It means working around the clock to reliably deliver electric energy to homes, businesses and farms, and then going another step to add what we can to make the communities we live in truly home.Learn About Our Commitment to Nebraskans

We believe a diverse generation mix serves our customers best. We use wind -- when it is available. We use coal -- which is reliable and helps keep electric rates low. We use water -- one of the oldest forms of renewable energy. We use nuclear -- which offers emission-free, around-the-clock power. We use natural gas -- to complement the portfolio.
As a public power utility, we are governed by an 11-member Board of Directors, popularly elected from within our chartered territory which includes all or parts of 84 of Nebraska's 93 counties. The board meets once a month to work for our customers.Meet Our Board of Directors
