S & L Pole Testing

S & L Pole Testing will be performing utility pole tests through the weekend. They will be working in the Bismark township in Cuming County in the CCPPD service area. You will see their pick-ups and ATV’s along the country roads. Please be aware of these workers and drive carefully.

Most utility poles are made of wood and their constant exposure to the environment takes a toll. Wind, moisture and soil conditions all can distress or decay wood. Regular pole inspection and treatment helps to spot and take care of any problems before they become critical situations.
S & L Pole Testing is a professional firm out of Columbus, Nebraska that is an expert in pole evaluations. Employees from S & L will be identifiable by company logos, equipment, shirts and hard hats and will carry identification. They will also have the “Contracted by CCPPD” magnets on their vehicles.

For more information, stop at the CCPPD office 500 South Main Street West Point or call (402) 372-2463.

UAV Recon will be testing in CCPPD Substations after dark

UAV Recon will begin infrared imaging of all CCPPD substations tomorrow night starting at 9pm. (Friday, September 6th). This means their vehicles may be parked at any of CCPPD’s substations after dark. Look for our "Contracted by CCPPD" magnets on the side of their vehicles. (Dusty Birge)




The drone platform allows an aerial view of these critical components as well as allows thermal equipment to be used, allowing us to identify components that are failing and invisible to the human eye. Replacing these components before failure helps prevent unwanted outages for our customers.

Please be careful this Harvest Season!

GMS Working For CCPPD

UPDATE: GMS (Global Mapping Solutions) is still contracted by CCPPD to capture GPS (Global Positioning System) information for all CCPPD electrical structures including poles, meters and transformers. They will be working in the middle eastern area of the CCPPD service territory. There is also a second group of workers that will be marking transmission poles and equipment all throughout the CCPPD territory.
Cuming County Public Power District is gathering all of this information for our mapping system. It will allow us to use any electronic device to view all of the equipment and locations of the equipment in our entire system.
GMS will be in the CCPPD service territory for several months completing their work. They will have signs on their vehicles stating they are "Contracted by CCPPD". We will notify customers by social media, the CCPPD website, press releases, public postings, newspapers and radio on what sections they will work on next.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact us at 402-372-2463 or 877-572-2463.

CCPPD Field Data Project Continues


GMS (Global Mapping Solutions) is still contracted by CCPPD to capture GPS (Global Positioning System) information for all CCPPD electrical structures including poles, meters and transformers. They will be working in the southeastern area of the CCPPD service territory. This includes parts or complete townships of St. Charles North & South, Sherman North & South, Cuming, Garfield, Logan, Neligh in Cuming County, Pebble & Cuming in Dodge County and Everett, Oakland, and Pershing in Burt County.
            Cuming County Public Power District is gathering all of this information for our GIS (Geographic Information System) mapping system. This will allow us to use any electronic device to view all of the equipment and locations of the equipment in our entire system.
            This GIS system is tied into all CCPPD customer data, billing and accounting software. This will allow the linemen to pinpoint the problem before going out to repair an issue as well as helping them know exactly what material is needed. For outages, it helps with planning for system improvements and shows what customers are affected. For staking and planning, it allows for correct quantities to be ordered and material needed prior to construction.
            GMS will be in the CCPPD service territory for several months completing their work. They will have signs on their vehicles stating they are contracted by CCPPD. We will notify customers by social media, the CCPPD website, press releases, public postings, newspapers and radio on what sections they will work on next. See the map below to view where they are currently working. Please tune in to one of these platforms to stay informed.
            If you have questions or concerns, please contact us at 402-372-2463 or 877-572-2463.
