Power Drive Program

The Power Drive Program is an educational effort that challenges high school students to design and build one-person electric vehicles during the school year. In the spring, these teams of students compete with one another at organized rallies in areas such as vehicle braking, maneuverability and endurance. Power Drive Logo

OPPD established Power Drive in 1998 to give high school students a hands-on way to apply their studies and to promote interest in automotive, electric and energy technologies and careers. Nebraska Public Power District added its resources and has remained a valuable Power Drive partner.

Based on the program's growth since its inception, it's clear that the students, their teachers and schools have embraced the concept.

The experience the participants gain through the program is important because they are the energy decision-makers of the future.
