As Great River Energy transforms its power supply portfolio to include more renewable resources, the electricity generated will get cleaner and cleaner. Additionally, participating in energy conservation and load management (off-peak) programs helps delay the need for further electricity generation by Great River Energy — saving Dakota Electric and its members money.
In 2020, Dakota Electric members helped save roughly 25,000,000 kilowatt hours of electricity by participating in conservation programs. Similarly, members who participate in Dakota Electric off-peak programs helped save over $17 million in wholesale power costs. These savings are a direct result from both new and ongoing member participation in our programs. Thank you for taking part, your participation is a win-win for everyone!
