CELEBRATING 70 YEARS OF SERVICE IN 2013
"As we celebrate our 70th year at Cornhusker Public Power District, I can't help but take a moment to remember the reason public power is a reality today. Over a hundred years ago, investor owned utilities were electrifying highly populated areas, but had no interest in the rural areas because of the high costs and low profit margins. Thankfully, President Roosevelt felt differently, as did our own state Senator, George W. Norris. They understood that hard working rural American's also deserved the benefits of electricity.
Cornhusker has been delivering reliable, low cost electricity for 70 years; we are very proud of our history and the opportunity to serve rural Nebraska."
