About Northeast Power

Our Mission

Delivering electricity, excellence and value …. safely, every day.

Our Purpose

Northeast Power building“The Northeast Power is dedicated to providing reliable and competitively priced electricity to our consumers while maintaining a sound financial position and effective, fair, and consistent service.”


The Northeast Nebraska Public Power District (Northeast Power) was formed in 1998 as a result of the consolidation of two smaller power districts: The Wayne County Public Power District and the Northeast Nebraska Rural Public Power District. At the time the Boards of Directors felt a consolidation would be an effective way to hold down overhead costs, improve efficiency and service, and ultimately keep retail electric rates low.

In 2000 Northeast Power assumed responsibility for serving 14 Villages and Towns with electric service. The Villages and Towns had previously been served by the Nebraska Public Power District, the only statewide electric company in Nebraska.
