Prepaid metering is a pay as you go electric service. You pay in advance for the electricity you will be using. Use an app, the internet or an automated phone system to monitor your balance so you know when to add funds. Your bill is calculated daily.


Pay on your schedule – daily, weekly or monthly – just maintain a prepaid balance.

  • It costs $125 to start a prepaid account ($50 deposit + $75 for power).
  • If your balance drops below $20 credit, you’ll receive an alert.
  • If the account drops to a $0 balance or below, it will be disconnected at noon on days when Dawson PPD’s office is open. Once you pay, the power can be restored
    • There are no reconnect fees, but your payment must bring the balance up to $50 credit or more.
  • This offer is available to Dawson PPD customers on the General Service and General Service-Electric Heat rates.
  • Billing options can be changed following established guidelines.
    • If you are currently a Dawson PPD customer with a traditional account, contact the billing department to talk about transitioning to a prepaid account.
  • Renters must receive approval from their landlord before participating.

Weatherization Assistance Program

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Weatherization Assistance Program installs energy efficiency measures in the homes of qualifying homeowners free of charge. The Community Action Partnership of Mid-Nebraska administers these funds. The mission of WAP is to reduce energy costs for low-income families, particularly the elderly, people with disabilities, and children, while safeguarding their health and safety.

Weatherization is available to homes that are owned or rented (with landlord permission), and the structure may be frame or mobile.

Weatherization includes:

  • Furnace & water heater inspection (if found unsafe, it can be repaired or replaced)
  • Adding insulation in attics and walls
  • Attic ventilation
  • Insulating crawl spaces
  • Installing water heater jackets
  • Insulating water heater pipes
  • Weather-stripping & caulking around doors, windows, and general heat waste areas
  • Repairing broken windows and doors (possibly replacing them, if determined cost effective by the National Energy Audit)

Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)

The Department of Health and Human Services Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program helps low income households pay for heating and possibly cooling their homes based on need. It does not pay for all energy costs, like security lights, and will most likely not cover the cost of the entire utility bill.

In an emergency or crisis situation, individuals may qualify for one-time assistance.

Cooling program:

  • The household must already qualify for heating assistance through LIHEAP
  • Includes a household member who:
    • Is 70 years old or older, or
    • Is a child under the age of 6 that receives ADC (Aid to Dependent Children), or
    • Has a severe illness or condition which is aggravated by extreme heat as verified by a medical statement signed by a licensed healthcare provider.
    • DHHS has purchased an air conditioner for the household within four years of the current application date.
