Central Nebraska Public Power and Irrigation District

Central, established in 1933, operates a hydro-irrigation project with four hydro plants (113 MW combined capacity). Power is sold at wholesale for distribution to electric customers. The project provides surface water irrigation to more than 112,000 acres in south-central Nebraska, supplemental water to another 130,000 acres, and ground water recharge benefits to more than 300,000 acres irrigated from wells. The project also provides recreational opportunities for the public and thousands of acres of habitat for wildlife.
