Pennies for Power

Since 2002, NPPD’s Pennies for Power energy assistance program has helped disadvantaged families pay energy-related expenses. The program is administered by the Nebraska 2-1-1 hosted by the United Way of the Midlands who screens applicants and determines program eligibility.

Funds for the program come from donations from NPPD customers and NPPD employees. Of the funds collected, 90 percent are dispersed to eligible participants.

Customers who would like to contribute may do so by contacting us at 1-877-ASK-NPPD (275-6773), send us an email or fill out our Energy Assistance Fund form. Donations may also be sent directly to the following address:

     Pennies for Power 
     Nebraska Public Power District 
     PO Box 499
     Columbus, NE 68602-0499

Contributions can be tax deductible. (Check with your tax advisor.)

The United Way provides assistance throughout Nebraska. For information about applying for financial assistance, please call 2-1-1 (or 402-444-6666) and refer to the NPPD Pennies for Power program.
