Happy New Year!!
SCAM ALERT!!! Be aware that yet another scam is targeting area electric coop customers. The scam can come in the form of a call, text message, or both. They demand immediate payment and threaten disconnection. If you call the number back they answer using some form of the coop name. The only numbers to call for your cooperative are 507-732-5117 or 1-800-927-6864. If you receive such a call, please contact the cooperative at one of the numbers listed and alert us immediately. Thank you!
Solar added to Wellspring Program!
Through Wellspring, members can purchase solar energy blocks for $2.00 per 100 kWh block. The amount you choose will be added to your monthly energy bill. This gives members the opportunity to support renewable energy without the cost of installing a generation system of their own. Those who participate are actually purchasing renewable energy credits or REC's. For every 1000 kWh's of renewable energy purchased, a REC is created. The REC embodies all of the environmental benefits of renewable energy and ensures that the power you are purchasing replaces electricity that would have been generated by conventional fossil fuels. If you would like to enroll in the Solar Welllspring Program click the Customer Service button at the top of the page and let us know how many blocks you would like to purchase per month. You can also call the office to join the program or if you have additional questions about Wellspring. There is no contract and you can opt out at any time.
