NCPPD’s board approved new rates that will provide for a seven percent reduction in overall rates. This reduction may vary (+) or (–) three percent between rate classes, but as a whole, the rates will be reduced by seven percent. NCPPD continues to evaluate and adjust its operations to provide the best reliability while maintaining an excellent level of value for its customers. For the second year in a row, the Board of Directors has also passed through a .006196/kWh Power Cost Adjustment (PCA) credit. The PCA is a credit NCPPD receives from its wholesale supplier, Nebraska Public Power District (NPPD). See the November-December Newsletter for more details.
