Let’s talk public power

October is public power month. Read how Dawson PPD works to serve you. Did you know that Nebraska is the only state in the nation served entirely by public power electric utilities? Community-owned utilities mean that Nebraskans are working for Nebraskans. Public power electric utilities are not-for-profit, meaning there’s no profit motive and no shareholder pockets to pad. Simply affordable, cost-of-service electric rates for consumers. Nebraska’s electric utilities are governed by locally elected or appointed boards and councils. This means you have a voice in the decisions made by your local utility. As a not-for-profit, Nebraska’s electric utilities pay more than $100 million to communities they serve each year in lieu of taxes. Those dollars stay local, helping to empower our hometowns. Each dollar of a public power employee’s paycheck circulates through the local economy an estimated four to five times. That’s keeping local dollars, local. Nebraska’s electric utilities use a diverse mix of fuel resources to generate electricity, such as wind, water, coal, nuclear, natural gas, solar and methane.
