About MEAN


Municipal Energy Agency of Nebraska (MEAN) is one of four organizations that make up the NMPP Energy coalition. MEAN is a not-for-profit wholesale power supplier that serves 69 participating communities in four states. 

THE Power of Experience

With our combined decades of experience, insight and connections, MEAN provides cost-based, long-term power supply to strengthen your community. Our network is your network. Many of us come from communities just like yours. We understand the challenges you face every day as a municipality.

We promise to be there when you need us. With our collective years of experience, we bring constructive and actionable ideas, resources, education and many other types of support to the table. When you encounter a unique or timely challenge in your everyday energy responsibilities, MEAN is your source for powerful solutions.


The combined knowledge, resources and purchasing power of MEAN help us keep costs down at every point in the process. We’re always looking for ways to increase efficiency and pass along savings. Our not-for-profit business model allows us to focus on saving your money, instead of generating our own returns. We look for ways to enhance services that benefit everyone – very different from investor-owned power companies.

We’re always on your side when it comes to our fiscal duties. We spend your money as if those dollars were our own: frugally, responsibly and with great attention to detail. We share every municipality’s desire for power production: reliability, financial strength and stable rates.

Our mission is to make sure the members in our four-state region receive the service and support they need with honesty, friendliness and reliability.


At NMPP Energy, our power is in our people. We are a coalition of four organizations serving nearly 200 Midwest and Rocky Mountain communities. We bring together energy professionals with similar needs to create a synergy of support and resources. We help municipalities ensure responsible, safe, continuous quality service to those who depend on them. Through an efficient framework of economical and cost-based services, we empower the people responsible for ensuring energy is always available and affordable. 

For utility professionals across the region, the combined experience and knowledge of NMPP Energy staff and members are at your service. For nearly a half-century, NMPP Energy has combined the skills, resources and access that municipalities need to support Americans across Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, and Wyoming. If your community looks to you for energy leadership, amplify your service with NMPP Energy.
