Thinking About Solar? Call Norris First! back to top >>

Many people are not aware of the complexity of setting up a complete solar power system or understanding the actual return on investment. If solar seems like a good investment for you, Norris is available to help you get started. Norris personnel will take the time to explain and can provide you valuable information throughout the process, so you understand the actual value of your investment.

The significant growth in solar has created excellent opportunities for highly rated and reputable companies to enter the solar industry. Unfortunately, some solar company representatives are high-pressure sellers who do not understand the electric industry. Other solar companies are fly-by-night operations with their only intent of taking advantage of energy consumers and making a profit.

In some instances, Norris representatives are not aware of the unscrupulous solar companies until a customer communicates that their energy bill has not decreased as they were told by the solar company. Dishonest sellers can overinflate current and future electric prices in their calculations. Norris recommends customers to call first when considering solar for their home or business to ensure that they have all the information needed to make the right choice, which may potentially save money and issues in the future.

Some individuals think that Norris is anti-solar or anti-wind because we sell electricity. Norris has board approved District Service Regulations that are fair and reasonable to all Norris customers whether they own customer-owned generation or not. The state of Nebraska has the unique distinction of providing 100% not-for-profit electricity to all citizens. Ensuring that customers receive non-discriminatory electric rates is a top priority for Norris.

It is important to remember that Norris has been a trusted energy advisor for nearly 88 years and is motivated to authentically assist Norris customers in their energy related interests.

  Back to School Means Sharing the Road       back to top >>  

School days bring congestion. School buses are picking up their passengers, kids on bikes are hurrying to get to school before the bell rings and anxious parents are trying to drop their kids off before work. It's never more important for drivers to slow down and pay attention than when kids are present, especially before and after school.

According to research by the National Safety Council, most of the children who lose their lives in bus related incidents are four to seven years old, and they're walking. They are hit by the bus, or by a motorist illegally passing a stopped bus.

A few precautions go a long way toward keeping children safe:

* Don't block the crosswalk when stopped at a red light or waiting to make a turn, forcing pedestrians to go around you.
* In a school zone when flashers are blinking, stop and yield to pedestrians crossing the crosswalk or intersection.
* Always stop for a school patrol officer or crossing guard holding up a stop sign.
* Don't honk or rev your engine to scare a pedestrian, even if you have the right of way.
* Never pass a vehicle stopped for pedestrians.
* Always use extreme caution to avoid striking pedestrians wherever they may be, no matter who has the right of way.
