ACE, the Public Alliance for Community Energy, recently distributed $200,000 to its 76 member communities through its revenue return program.
Through the program, the ACE board of directors may vote to return revenue to its member communities. The board approved the distribution at its board meeting in January.
Since forming in 1998, ACE has returned more than $3.3 million back to its Nebraska member communities. The funds are used in various ways to benefit each ACE member community, including helping fund recreational trails, community swimming pool and park improvements.
Nebraska communities formed ACE to provide competition in the Nebraska Choice Gas program while retaining local control. It also provides advocacy for Choice Gas customers and strives to keep revenue in Nebraska’s ACE member communities.
The Nebraska Choice Gas program selection period will run from April 1 through April 21. During this period, customers can choose a competitive rate and pricing option online at www.ACEenergy.org or by calling ACE at (800) 454-4759. Selection forms will be mailed out to all eligible customers prior to the start of the selection period.
