Affordable electricity benefits all Nebraskans. At a time when prices on everything seem to be climbing, public power remains a great value for Nebraskans. In fact, since 1936 electric rates in Nebraska have only gone up five cents per kilowatt hour.

Local Control

The decisions governing electric utilities are made by locally elected board members. There are no profit-driven shareholders making decisions that will ensure the greatest profits, only local individuals that receive the same level of service as their constituents.


A reliable electric supply to our homes and businesses is a luxury we often take for granted. Unfortunately, we often don’t realize how important a reliable energy supply is to us until we have to go without it, like during a severe storm.

Eco Friendly

The Nebraska Magazine has been published since January 1947. The role of the publication is to chronicle the benefits and challenges of rural community life, inform consumers of the status of the rural electrification programs, inform consumers about the challenges faced by rural electric service providers and to provide electrical safety and energy conservation information.  The Nebraska Magazine is published monthly and is distributed by mail to approximately 50,000 rural households in 70 Nebraska counties.

The NREA JT&S Program is structured for the employees of NREA’s member-systems which emphasizes safe and productive work environments. The program is designed to communicate and instruct the latest JT&S techniques and methodologies that saves lives, reduces lost work time, and preserves member-system financial resources.  Experienced JT&S instructors provide on-site training and safety techniques to all member-system employees in numerous areas and disciplines.

Each year member-systems of the NREA accept applications from area high school students to attend the NREA Youth Energy Leadership Camp at State 4-H Camp in the Halsey National Forest, usually the second week in July. The popular five-day camp gives young people a better understanding of the legislative process, electric power generation, and the rural electric program. The goal is to offer a program that challenges participants educationally, recreationally and socially. The Youth Energy Leadership Camp involves about 65 highly motivated high school-aged men and women from Nebraska, Wyoming, South Dakota and Colorado whose rural homes are served by one of the NREA's member-systems. The camp offers educational and recreational experiences, leadership training, environmental awareness, character building and social interaction.  Contact Wayne Price for additional information:
