Over the next few months North Central Public Power District (NCPPD) will focus on tree maintenance, which is one of the leading causes of power outages. Tree trimming and removal is a proactive approach to this ongoing problem. We understand the importance of trees and realize the value to our customers. Proper tree maintenance is a benefit to everyone.

For tree maintenance this year, NCPPD’s Operations Department will be contacting customers in Knox County to receive tree trimming and removal permission. The 85-3 Niobrara rural and 85-6 Verdigre rural substations will be the focus of attention for tree maintenance. Customers are reminded to report any potential issues concerning trees and power lines. We are continuously working to ensure our customers have safe and reliable electric service.
