Franchises

MidAmerican Energy Company works closely with communities across its service territory in development of franchise agreements. Franchise agreements provide the authority and legal right to use the streets, alleys and public places for placement and maintenance of utility equipment and are the only legally recognized method of granting a utility the right to occupy and use the city’s public right of way.

Benefits for a community resulting in having a franchise agreement with MidAmerican Energy include no cost relocations for company facilities on city projects, potential franchise fee implementation, indemnification from litigation on city-company projects, and development of long-range planning to best serve a community’s energy requirements.
