Dawson PPD and CNPPID explore opportunities
Could a partnership provide better service to customers? Dawson Public Power District and Central Nebraska Public Power and Irrigation District have hired a consultant to explore the value of a possible merger. The study will look at assets, liabilities, facilities, contracts, labor, logistics, customer representation and legal issues.
“As directors, part of our duty is to explore possibilities that may better serve our customers and position Dawson Public Power District for the future,” says Pat Hecox, board president.
Dawson PPD provides power to over 23,000 electric meters, including 5,792 irrigation accounts. The Central NPPID provides water to irrigation customers, recreational opportunities at area lakes and reservoirs and generates electricity with hydropower.
Both organizations are guided by an elected board of directors. As the phases of the study are evaluated, the results are presented to each board. There is an option to end the process at any time.
