Operation Round Up is a nationally recognized voluntary program available to customers of Norris Public Power District. Participating customers have their monthly electric bills “rounded up” to the next highest dollar. These additional cents are placed in the Norris Power Goodwill Fund and are available as grants to local organizations. To date, 68% of Norris customers participate in this worthwhile program.
Since the program began in 2001, Operation Round Up has granted $1,185,000 to local organizations for projects that serve community needs in Gage, Jefferson, Lancaster, Saline, Seward and Thayer counties. Grant recipients are published quarterly in the Norris Electric News Magazine.
The Norris Power Goodwill Fund is administered by a six-member customer volunteer board representing each county that Norris serves.
Gage County – Roger Theye
Jefferson County – Barbara Baldwin
Lancaster County – Bill Wiechert
Saline County – Larry Kaspar
Seward County – Shelley Schluckebier
Thayer County – David Rippe
