NPPD Satisfying Food Processors’ Power Needs
Reliable, affordable energy provided by NPPD and its public power partners is helping to satisfy the power needs of food processors, who also take advantage of the state’s skilled workforce and R&D resources.

Nebraska is the only state in the nation with electric service provided entirely by public power. The Nebraska Public Power District (NPPD) is the state’s largest electric utility, serving 86 of the state’s 93 counties with a diverse mix of fuels. Together with its public power partners, NPPD has developed a large customer economic development incentive electric rate that offers energy at a discounted price for a fixed period of time.
Other incentives are offered for energy-efficiency programs. For example, Open Range Beef’s meat processing plant in Gordon recently received an incentive from NPPD to improve the efficiency of the compressed air system used in its operations, thereby reducing electricity use.
