Approximately twelve miles of the 2,033 miles of line are underground. The District receives all of its power and energy at four delivery points, through the Nebraska Electric Generation and Transmission Cooperative Inc., from Nebraska Public Power District.
The properties of the District’s electric system are well maintained. Repairs and replacements are being made on a regular basis to ensure continuity of service to the District’s 8,314 metered service connections. Over one-third of the services are used for irrigation or grain drying.
