The Omaha Public Power District in Nebraska said yesterday it distributed more than $29 million in 2012 in-lieu-of-tax payments to 11 counties in the utility’s service territory. This sets a new record, surpassing last year’s amount by $1.8 million, OPPD said. The payments are based on 5 percent of OPPD’s gross revenues from retail sales of electricity in incorporated cities and towns during the previous year. "The past year presented significant challenges; however, OPPD employees responded by taking extra measures to maintain its reliable operations, plan for the future and keep rates below the national average," said OPPD Board Chairman Fred J. Ulrich.
