Utility companies serving Kearney offer financial incentives to qualifying customers. These economic development riders and business incentive plans are designed to encourage industrial and commercial development by providing additional start-up cost savings to large users of natural gas and electricity.
Qualifications are based on load requirements and/or demand levels of the customer’s utility usage. Utilities may offer qualified customers a five-year decreasing discounts schedule equivalent to, or nearly equivalent to, one free year of service. Cost saving estimates and information on the incentive programs are available to qualifying customers from the specific utility company and/or the Kearney Area Development Council.
