Outage Last Night!

NPPD Outage 7/5/12

Cuming County Public Power District customers experienced widespread outages last night beginning around 2am. The cause of the outage has been linked to an equipment failure in Nebraska Public Power District’s Bancroft 115 kV substation. This caused breakers to trip in NPPD’s Beemer 115 kV substation. These events halted high voltage power feeding most of CCPPD’s substations. All power was restored by 3:23am.

Please contact the office with any concerns or questions: 402-372-2463 or toll free 1-877-572-2463.
