•The agency kicked off the formation of a Team to develop a two-phase Energy Plan for the state. The first phase will be similar to what is in the Energy Annual Report, which provides a detailed summary of Nebraska energy statistics. The second phase will be more topic-oriented and provide greater examination of current energy issues.
•NDEE has finalized emergency loans from the state revolving fund with Peru, Boyd County, and Plattsmouth and has almost finalized a loan with Crab Orchard. These bridge loans are offered at 0% interest to help communities repair their water systems that were damaged in the March flood event.
