Save Money on Your Nebraska Power Bills!

Save Money on Your Nebraska Power Bills!

The electric bill can be a budget-buster when you’re surviving on a low income. Fortunately, your power company can usually help. There are several unknown or little-advertised programs that power companies may offer that can help lower the cost of your power bill.


Most power companies offer a budget billing plan, which averages the annual cost of electricity in a home and bills the customer in 12 even installments. This can help low-income customers maintain a budget and avert payment problems, especially during the more expensive winter months. Just click the link below to find out what discounts, rebates and other money-saving programs are offered by YOUR local utility company
