Keeping money in Nebraska communities

The ACE Board of Directors recently approved the distribution of $250,000 to its 72 Nebraska member communities through ACE’s revenue return program as a not-for-profit, community-owned natural gas supplier.

Through the program, the ACE board of directors may return excess revenue beyond the cost of operating the organization to its member communities. Since forming in 1998, ACE has returned more than $2 million back to its Nebraska members. The funds are used in various ways to benefit each ACE member community.

“The formation of ACE was to provide local control regarding competitive natural gas pricing,” said Beth Ackland, ACE director of retail gas services. “The added benefit of having money returned back to Nebraska communities is a direct result of ACE being not-for-profit and community-owned.”

ACE has competed in the Nebraska Choice Gas selection period every year since forming. Selections may be made online at or by phone at (800) 454-4759.
