Electricity Providers and Their Rates
Nebraska

2010

In 2010, Nebraskans paid an average of nine cents per kilowatthour for electricity.  The industrial, commercial, and residential sectors each paid an average rate of nine cents per kilowatthour.  The transportation category had no customers and therefore no rate.  Beginning with the 2003 data, the transportation category replaced the "other" category for the sales of power to electrified rail and urban transit systems whose primary propulsive energy source was electricity.

The state's electricity was supplied by 160 companies whose average 2010 rates ranged from the Western Area Power Administration's 3.04 cents to the Panhandle Rural Electric Membership Association's 13.83 cents per kilowatthour.  Residential rates ranged from the Village of Hildreth's 3.79 cents to the Wyrulec Company's 14.27 cents per kilowatthour.  Commercial rates ranged from the Western Area Power Administration's 3.04 cents to the Northwest Rural Public Power District's 16.42 cents per kilowatthour.  Industrial rates ranged from the Village of De Witt's 2.64 cents to the Butler County Rural Public Power District's 25.06 cents per kilowatthour.

1 Beginning with the 2003 data, the Transportation Sector replaces the Other Sector for the sales of power to electrified rail and urban transit systems whose primary propulsive energy source is electricity.

2 Municipals could be described as cities, towns, and villages, which purchase or generate electric power primarily for distribution and resale to the citizens within their municipal borders.  They are generally regulated by elected city councils.

3 A political subdivision is similar to counties, utility districts, or irrigation districts.

4 A cooperative electric utility is an electric utility legally established to be owned by and operated for the benefit of those using its service.  The utility company will generate, transmit, and/or distribute supplies of electric energy to a specified area not being serviced by another utility.  Such ventures are generally exempt from federal income tax laws.  Most electric cooperatives have been initially financed by the Rural Utilities Service (prior Rural Electrification Administration), U.S. Department of Agriculture.

5 State ownership refers to statewide organizations whose scope is larger than county level.

6 Federal utilities are federal government agencies whose primary function is the production and sale of electricity, either wholesale or retail.  They include utilities under the supervision of the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs, Department of the Interior.
