Nearly every state in the U.S. has a public power utility, but Nebraska is the only state served 100 percent by publicly-owned utilities, which translates into superior reliability and affordable costs. Nebraskans pay some of the lowest electric rates in the nation year after year because not-for-profit, cost-of-service-based rates mean prices include only the cost of generating and delivering power. Furthermore, 20 percent of Nebraska’s power is from renewable sources.
The Western Nebraska Panhandle has extremely reliable and far-reaching internet service, even in our smaller communities. What might be surprising is that we have faster broadband speeds than many larger municipalities and metro areas because of our lower population density.
