The Loup River Public Power District (The District) is a public power electric utility serving a four county area in the state of Nebraska. We have hydro generation along with transmission and distribution services. Our headquarters are located in Columbus, Nebraska, with other offices in communities throughout the District’s service territory. Loup River Public Power District was the first public power district created in the state in 1933 following the passage of the Enabling Act by the Nebraska Legislature. The hydro generation project was approved for Public Works Administration funds later that year. Following the completion of this generation system, we evolved into our current form as we added transmission and distribution services for our customers in our existing service territory. We continue to focus on maximizing the use of the water from the Loup River and providing low cost electric services to our customers.
