One Simple Step Energy Education Program

Energy conservation can be achieved one simple step at a time. Do one today. Do another tomorrow. One at a time. And, soon you'll be on your way to saving energy AND money. Take one simple step at a time and the more steps you take the more you will reduce the energy you use in your home.

The Nebraska Energy Assistance Network (NEAN) and Loup Power District in partnership with our wholesale provider, Nebraska Public Power District, are making the One Simple Step videos available to area residents. These YouTube videos show homeowners, renters, and landlords how to take simple steps to increase energy efficiency and reduce energy costs.

They have joined together to: educate Nebraskans to use energy efficiently, assist residents in meeting their basic energy needs, provide links to financial assistance and energy efficiency resources, and to identify and address energy needs. Funding for the One Simple Step public awareness campaign is provided by a grant from the Nebraska Energy Office.
