North Plains Electric Cooperative has a larger than average amount of three phase distribution in its seven county service territory when compared to similar utilities nationwide. The current large power rate is quite attractive compared to National ($0.06112/kWh) and Texas ($0.05983/kWh) industrial averages. The rising cost of petroleum currently makes electric power a more cost-effective alternative.
