The Municipal Energy Agency of Nebraska (MEAN) Board of Directors approved extending its five-year wholesale power contract agreement with the City of Holyoke, Colo., at its board meeting in November.

The new contract is set to run from October 2018 through September 2023.

Holyoke also receives services through the Nebraska Municipal Power Pool, the utility services organization of NMPP Energy, such as Powermanager utility billing software, utility safety training and mutual aid.

“We’re pleased to continue serving Holyoke,” said Tim Sutherland, MEAN’s director of wholesale electric operations. “We look forward to continuing our relationship and assisting the City any way we can.”
