Cost of Doing Business

According to the Pollina Corporate Real Estate study, Nebraska is one of the top-ten pro-business states in the country.

The state is rich in dark and lit fiber. A vast network of multiple local carriers and more than 10 long haul carriers traverse the state along Interstate 80 and other essential transportation corridors in all directions. Nebraska’s central locality is key to the connections these carriers make in Denver and Chicago, which continue on throughout the U.S. and around the world.

Low Cost Electricity

Without any compromise to quality, service or availability, businesses and residents in Nebraska benefit significantly from low cost electricity.

Nebraska is the only public power state in the U.S. This means that the power companies in Nebraska are public entities. All profits go back into the power company to help keep rates low. The power companies in Nebraska consistently deliver industrial electricity rates that are nearly 40 % below the national average.

In addition to electricity, Nebraska’s water and natural gas rates are also below national averages.
