Gothenburg’s share of ACE grants is $1,747

LINCOLN—ACE, the Public Alliance for Community Energy is distributing $1,747.39 to the City of Gothenburg as its share of $100,000 being distributed to the 72 Nebraska member communities of the not-for-profit, community-owned natural gas supplier.

The ACE board of directors may return any excess revenue beyond the cost of operating the organization to its member communities. Including this year, ACE returned $250,000 the last two years to its member communities.

Since forming in 1998, ACE has returned nearly $1.3 million back to its Nebraska members. The funds are used in various ways to benefit each ACE member community.

“The primary mission of ACE is to provide competition in the Nebraska Choice Gas program for the benefit of all customers,” said Beth Ackland, director of retail gas services for ACE. “Another benefit of ACE is the possible option each year of returning funds back to Nebraska communities. It’s really a win-win situation for Nebraskans.”

The Choice Gas selection period is set to begin April 11 and run through April 24.
