Our Purpose: “The Northeast Nebraska Public Power District is dedicated to providing reliable and competitively priced electricity to our consumers while maintaining a sound financial position and effective, fair and consistent service.”
The Northeast Nebraska Public Power District (NeNPPD) was formed in 1998 as a result of the consolidation of two smaller power districts: The Wayne County Public Power District and the Northeast Nebraska Rural Public Power District. At the time the Boards of Directors felt a consolidation would be an effective way to hold down overhead costs, improve efficiency and service and ultimately keep retail electric rates low.
In 2000 the NeNPPD assumed responsibility for serving 14 Villages and Towns with electric service. The Villages and Towns had previously been served by the Nebraska Public Power District, the only statewide electric company in Nebraska.
NeNPPD serves approximately 8,500 retail electric customers in Pierce, Thurston, Wayne, Dixon and Dakota Counties in Nebraska. NeNPPD operates about 3,000 miles of electric lines and over 100 miles of high voltage transmission lines. Power is delivered to the Cities of Wayne, Wakefield, Winside and Emerson over NeNPPD transmission lines from the Nebraska Public Power District which owns coal and nuclear generating plants. NNPPD has crews in Osmond, Emerson, Ponca and Wayne.
