City Loses Lawsuit Against Power Supplier
October 12, 2018
A few years ago, the City of Sidney filed a lawsuit against its electric power provider.
The reason for the suit, according to City Manager Ed Sadler, is the company, Municipal Energy Agency of Nebraska (MEAN), changed the point of delivery, and consequently the price of power increased substantially. Sadler said rates were increased twice totaling a little under 10 percent. Sadler said because of what was happening, the City was already collecting with the expectation that if the City loses the case, MEAN would be compensated by revenue from the rates.
Arbitrators initially ruled in favor...
