Neligh was recently the beneficiary of a generous donation from a state-wide non-profit organization.
ACE, the Public Alliance for Community Energy distributed $3,793.62 to the City of Neligh as its share of $200,000 being distributed to the 72 Nebraska member communities of the not-for-profit, community-owned natural gas supplier.
The ACE board of directors may return excess revenue beyond the cost of operating the organization to its member communities. The board approved the distribution at its board meeting earlier this year. Since forming in 1998, ACE has returned more than $1.8 million back to its Nebraska members, including $34,046.16 to Neligh overall. The funds are used in various ways to benefit each ACE member community.
“Along with ACE’s mission of providing competitive pricing in the Nebraska Choice Gas program and to serve as an advocate for Choice Gas customers, ACE gives funds back to benefit Nebraska communities,” said Beth Ackland, ACE director of retail gas services. “It really is a win-win situation for Nebraskans.”
The Choice Gas selection period is set to begin April 13 and run through April 27. Selections may be made online through April 27 using ACE’s website (www.ACEenergy.org) or by phone at 800-454-4759. Selection forms will be mailed out to all eligible customers prior to the beginning of the selection period.
