This section contains an assertion that it is in the public interest of the state of Nebraska to “support the development of least cost energy sources, including support for research, development, and the prudent use of renewable and nonrenewable supply-side technologies ... [and] to encourage energy efficiency and the use of indigenous energy sources. Consistent with this policy, the public utilities in Nebraska shall practice integrated resource planning and include least cost options when evaluating alternatives for providing energy supply and managing energy demand in Nebraska.” The remainder of this section deals primarily with energy efficiency measures.
