Cornhusker Public Power District is a not-for-profit political subdivision of the State of Nebraska. Because Nebraska is the only state in the nation that is 100 percent public power, electric rates are much lower than the national average.
Customers control the district which means local control and low-cost electricity for consumers. A board of 10 directors is elected during the general election. These directors live in the district and protect the rights of the customers they represent. Because there are no stockholders, Cornhusker Public Power District is continuously reinvesting in the system.
Cornhusker Public Power District is dedicated to programs such as economic development, safety programs for schools, taking photos of purple ribbon 4-H and FFA exhibitors, Cornhusker Power Goodwill Fund and Community Builders.
Reliability of service is important to our customers. We take pride in keeping the lights on, despite Nebraska’s harsh weather. Over the last five years, we’ve been able to provide 99.9% reliability.
