For more than five decades, we have provided low-cost, reliable electricity to Nebraskans. Because of our success in keeping rates affordable and ensuring reliability is among the best in the nation, our state has become an attractive place to plant roots – not just for individuals, but for businesses, too.
Right now, there are many companies, particularly those in the agriculture industry, that are interested in calling Nebraska home. This presents great opportunities for rural communities to grow and prosper through enhanced job markets, capital investment, and additional revenue.
We are committed to supporting this coming expansion and will rise to meet the needs of existing and incoming customers by pursuing cost-effective, responsive solutions that will add new generation capacity to our diverse generation mix.
The planned generation will complement our existing fleet and strengthen our ability to be the affordable, reliable, resilient provider Nebraskans have come to know and trust. As we look toward the Nebraska of tomorrow, we are excited to partner with every customer, from the smallest of families to the largest of businesses, to make their aspirations a reality.
A diverse energy mix provides Nebraskans with some of the lowest energy costs in the nation without compromising reliability.
