Community Involvement

Being active in the community is an important part of being a cooperative, and Dakota Electric has maintained strong connections with our local communities for more than sixty years. Through partnerships with schools, businesses and community organizations, we work hard to enhance the quality of life for local residents.

Dakota Electric’s Involvement

In addition to providing financial support to many important community organizations and events, Dakota Electric employees actively participate in organizations such as the Rotary, Dakota-Scott Workforce Investment Board and Chambers of Commerce.

Employee Involvement

Employees hold regular fundraisers and donate time to organizations such as the United Way, American Cancer Society, Meals on Wheels and Habitat for Humanity through Dakota Electric sponsored events.

Many of our employees also live in the communities we serve. As a result, many employees spend time outside of work helping with little league teams, volunteer fire departments and other organizations that make our communities a better place to live.
