Econ Dev

We actively participate in the development of the communities in our service area. Through leadership roles and financial committments, we contribute to economic development and business expansion within our service territory.

Our service area remains attractive to new businesses and the employees who work there, because of the many advantages we have to offer. Nebraska has an overall cost of living that ranks below the national average in all major categories, including food, housing, utilities, transportation, and health care. Our communities are full of hardworking people who take great pride in their jobs, families and in themselves.

Perennial Public Power District headquarters is located in York, Nebraska. Our service area covers York and Fillmore counties.

East-west Interstate 80 is located near the center of our District. North-south U.S. Highway 81 runs through our entire service area. This highway is part of the Pan American Highway, which begins at the southern tip of South America and extends north through Central America, Mexico, the United States, and terminates at Winnipeg, Canada. Because of the transportation access, new business interested in relocating or expanding in Nebraska couldn’t find a better location than in Perennial Power’s service area.
