Nebraska is the only state in the nation served with electricity totally from public power. Nebraska's public utilities have ample electric generating capacity to meet present and future needs at a cost far below the national average.

The Western Area Power Association (WAPA) provides the majority of the city's electrical consumption while Municipal Energy Agency of Nebraska (MEAN) provides the remainder of Wisner's usage. In addition to WAPA and MEAN power, the city owns a generation plant which remains operable and is used from time to time during maintenance periods and emergencies.

The City of Wisner provides incentive to upgrade home insulation

With cooler temperatures of fall arriving, now is a good time to make energy effiency upgrades for the upcoming colder months.

The City of Wisner, in partnership with its wholesale electric power supplier, the Municipal Energy Agency of Nebraska, provides a financial incentive for upgrading attic insulation to residential homes. The Attic Insulation Program provides cash incentives of $0.15/per square foot with a maximum incentive of $300 per existing residential dwelling for attic insulation.

The program is among a suite of five energy efficiency programs offered through the City of Wisner. Each program provides cash incentives for homeowners to make energy efficiency upgrades.

The other programs include:

High Efficiency Heat-Up Program

Provides cash incentives from $400 to $3,000 to residential homeowners who are installing a new heat pump system to their residential single-family dwelling.

Smart Thermostat Program 

Provides a cash incentive of up to $100 paid directly to residential customers to help cover the cost of installing a qualifying smart thermostat.

Cooling System Tune-Up Program 

Provides a $30 cash incentive to residential homeowners who have their cooling system tuned up by a HVAC contractor, regardless of what type or age of cooling system (air conditioner/air or water source heat pump).
