Since 1898, the City of Wayne Electrical Distribution System has served as an integral part of the Wayne community.
Our mission is to serve our customers with reliable, quality power service in a prompt, courteous manner at competitive rates, while generating sufficient income for infrastructure improvements and returns to our customers, by helping to keep the tax levy at a reasonable rate and by assisting in the funding of community projects.
The City of Wayne receives its wholesale power from two sources. Approximately 20% of Wayne’s power requirements are supplied from Western Area Power Administration
(WAPA) with power coming from dams along the Missouri River.
The remaining 80% of Wayne’s power needs are supplied by Nebraska Public Power District
The Electric Distribution Department consists of a four-man crew
, with two members of the crew on call at all times, in case of an emergency, outage or other electrical problems.
The crew is equipped with two bucket trucks, a digger derrick, three service trucks, a trencher and a vibrating plow among other equipment that it needs to construct and maintain its 100 miles of overhead and underground power lines throughout the City.
