ACE distributes $300,000 to communities

February 27, 2019

The ACE (Public Alliance for Community Energy) board of directors recently approved distributing $300,000 to the 72 Nebraska member communities of the not-for-profit, community-owned natural gas supplier.

Through ACE’s revenue return program, the ACE board of directors may vote to return revenue beyond the cost of operating the organization to its member communities. The board approved the distribution at its board meeting earlier this year.

Since forming in 1998, ACE has returned more than $2.3 million back to its Nebraska member communities. The funds are used in various ways to benefit each ACE member community.

Nebraska communities formed ACE for the primary purpose of providing competitively priced natural gas while retaining local control and keeping more revenue in Nebraska’s ACE member communities.

Selection forms will be mailed out to all eligible customers prior to the start of the selection period. Early signup pricing is also available by calling ACE at (800) 454-4759.
