Planting Pollinator Gardens

Last year Crow Wing Power prepared four substations in Crow Wing County for planting pollinator seeds to create habitat for butterflies and bees.  We’ve historically had grass growing around all of our substations, but decided the substations would provide excellent locations for pollinator perennial plants.  This year we are turning two substations in Morrison County into pollinator gardens with the co-sharing costs of Morrison County Soil and Water Conservation.  In the past few years, we’ve all read about the nearly extinct Minnesota native Rusty Patch bumble bee

2018 Member Appreciation Day and Ballots

Crow Wing Power's 81st Annual meeting and Member Appreciation Day was Saturday, June 9 this year.  Ballots for Director Elections  were sent to members May 9.  

A total of 4,798 ballots were cast in this year’s Board of Directors election.

Phone Scam Alert

May 9, We received a call from a Minnesota Power customer that someone claiming to be from Crow Wing Power called them to demand an immediate payment or their electricity would be shut off.  Periodically we hear reports of this type of scam.  We will never call and ask for your credit card number over the phone.  Beware and always call us if you are unsure. 

Planned Summer PCA Rate Increase Cancelled

The Board of Directors voted at their April 20th meeting to cancel the scheduled summer power cost adjustment (PCA) increase.  The summer PCA, scheduled to increase to 2.0 cents/kWh for electricity used in the months of June, July and August, will continue at the current rate of 1.5 cents/kWh.

The Board decision to eliminate the summer PCA increase is primarily due to revenue exceeding budget projections for the first quarter of 2018.  Electricity sales were higher than anticipated due to the colder weather we experienced.
