At Federated Rural Electric Association we are committed to economic development in our region.
Federated Rural Electric provides wholesale power to five towns: Round Lake, Ceylon, Dunnell, Alpha and Dundee. It serves several towns with retail power: Heron Lake, Okabena, Wilder, Welcome, Sherburn, Granada, Dunnell and Kinbrae in Minnesota and Huntington, Iowa. It has been involved in load management programs since 1983, saving its members millions of dollars. Load management allows Federated to control wholesale purchases of electricity by buying it at the least expensive times. Load management programs include heating, cooling, water heating and gensets. More than half of Federated's members have some type of load management installed in their homes.
