Rate Case Update

The state agency review process for Dakota Electric’s general rate case continues. At the time of publication, we expect the report and recommendations from the Administrative Law Judge will be provided to the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission.

Mutual Aid

Dakota Electric crews provided mutual aid to a neighboring Minnesota cooperative, East Central Energy, at the end of March.

East Central had significant power outages due to a winter storm that moved through and left over 80 utility poles broken.

Our crews helped to restore power safely, while also practicing social distancing. We are proud to help out during these times.

Battery Powered Yard Tool Rebate

Today’s battery-powered yard tools can handle most yard work, are reliable and easy to operate and maintain. Price is just one of the many factors to consider when comparing battery-powered yard tools. In the end, that $119 tool might not be a better deal than the one that’s $199. As of May 1, 2020, Dakota Electric offers a rebate on some battery-powered yard tools. Restrictions apply and funds are limited, so visit our website for details before making your purchase.

Leaf blower, Chainsaw, Trimmer or Weed Whip – $25 rebate
Mower – $50 rebate
