Boys enjoying the good life.

Improving our communities and bringing new jobs and opportunities to our service area is important to Dawson Public Power District.

We’ve helped the people in northeast Buffalo County attract the Abengoa Biofuels ethanol plant. Dawson obtained grant money that has been loaned to the community of Hershey to add housing units. Dawson PPD and Nebraska Public Power District partnered to help many local farmers apply for USDA grants to improve the efficiency of their irrigation systems. In addition, we supported workshops for small business owners.

In Dawson county, we participate in the ABLE program which aims to inform students about employment opportunities in the area. The goal is to have teens return to Dawson County for their careers.

Dawson PPD is your neighbor and we want to help you. We want to make your business grow and be more profitable — for you and your future.
