ACE Board approves $400,000 revenue distribution

The ACE Board of Directors recently approved a revenue distribution of $400,000 to its 75 member communities through ACE’s revenue return program.

Through the program, the ACE Board may vote to return revenue to its member communities. Since forming in 1998, ACE has returned more than $3.2 million back to its Nebraska member communities. The funds are used in various ways to benefit each ACE member community.

“On top of competitive rates that ACE strives to provide customers, another benefit of ACE is the ability to return revenue to Nebraska communities to improve the quality of life in each community,” said Beth Ackland, director of gas operations for ACE. “Providing millions of dollars to communities through ACE’s revenue return program is a huge benefit for Nebraska and a tremendous success story for a grass-roots organization like ACE.”

Nebraska communities formed ACE to provide competitively priced natural gas while retaining local control and keeping more revenue in Nebraska’s ACE member communities.

The Nebraska Choice Gas program selection period is expanded for 2021, starting March 18 and running through April 22. Selections may be made on ACE’s website during the selection period. Selection forms will be mailed out to all eligible customers prior to the start of the selection period.
