State of the Utility
Powering the Future
State of the Utility community meetings were originally scheduled the weeks of March 16 and March 23 in Douglas, Sarpy, Washington, Saunders and Nemaha counties. Due to recent developments regarding coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), OPPD is adjusting outreach plans to reflect recommendations from infectious disease experts and will be moving from in-person meetings to putting all information online.
We appreciate your flexibility and understanding, as Omaha Public Power District is taking a cautious and thoughtful approach to COVID-19. As more people stay home, and in some cases work remotely, we are keenly aware of the importance of reliable electricity to power their lives now more than ever. Internally, we are taking steps to protect our employees so that they can continue to serve our customers when they need us most.
