This department provides electrical service to our residents. The department purchases the electricity and then passes it on through the City’s electrical system. The department is responsible for maintenance of the entire electrical distributions system.
The power plant is on standby in case it is needed. The plant receives credit or payment from MEAN in order to keep the plant operational and ready to go in case it is ever needed to provide electricity.
The plant’s capacity is 8.2 Megawatt. The plant is completely operational and is currently leased to the Municipal Energy Agency of Nebraska (MEAN).
