Delivering value to our members and communities by providing safe, reliable and progressive energy and other services.
During the 2017 Legislative Session, the Minnesota Legislature passed, and the Governor signed, a provision that reduces
duplicative regulation on your electric cooperative. This piece of legislation, Local Democracy, returns some balance to the
regulatory process, ensuring decisions that impact member-owners of rural electric cooperatives are made locally by your
elected board of directors.
Call Gopher State One
Before you dig, call Gopher State at 1-800-252-1166. They will contact all area utilities
to determine the locations of utility owned underground cables, lines and pipes. Keep in
mind that only utility owned lines will be marked, so customers need to be cautious of any
