Study to Determine Impact of Electric System Deregulation

In 1996, the Legislature directed its Natural Resources Committee to study the state's electric system and the affect of deregulation on the nation's only electric system owned in its entirety by consumers.

The study is nicknamed "LR455" because the legislative resolution  or LR for short   authorizing the study was numbered 455. The study will be completed at the end of this year.

The study is being guided by a task force and 40 advisory committee members. The task force is comprised of a project manager, facilitator and six Nebraska Power Association representatives. This group primarily functions as the study's staff. 

Background information on the study and a list of the members of the advisory group can be found at www.nol.org/home/NEO/eleres.htm
