About Cooperative Electricity

Cooperative electricity isn’t profit-driven, it’s people-driven. As an electric cooperative member-owner, you have a voice and a vote in how your electric provider serves you and your business. And because co-ops serve their member-owners, their relationship with their industrial and commercial members is vital. When you’re a cooperative member, you’re not just a number on a bill, you’re a member of a community.

  • Minnesota’s co-ops serve more than 70 percent of the state’s geography, providing affordable, reliable electric service.
