Founded in 1965, the Northeast Public Power Association (NEPPA) is a private, non-profit trade association that is incorporated as a 501c (6) with a mission to represent and serve consumer-owned utilities of New England. Nationally, one customer in four is served by a public power company that is owned and operated by local or state governments or rural cooperatives. In the six New England states, over 78 public power systems serve roughly two million retail customers and sell over 12 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity annually. Many of these public power companies are NEPPA’s members!
NEPPA is governed by an elected Board of Directors comprised of 21 public power officials representing member utilities in all six New England states. Seven standing committees provide guidance on member services and policies. The Executive Director reports to the NEPPA Board of Directors.
Including the Executive Director, NEPPA employs five professionals as well as contracted trainers. NEPPA’s annual revenue averages approximately $2.3 million, of which approximately 57% is comprised of education and training revenues, and 32% is derived from membership dues
