Lake Region Electric Cooperative is located in Pelican Rapids at the heart of Minnesota lake country. In 1937, friends and neighbors worked together to gain access to the benefits of electricity. A lot has changed over the years, but Lake Region's mission remains the same: to provide reliable, affordable electricity to its members.
