Our Source of Power
Price Electric Cooperative is an electric distribution cooperative. We do not generate any electric power. Electric Power is delivered to six substations in our service area by Dairyland Power Cooperative, of LaCrosse, Wisconsin, via their transmission system and partially on the transmission system of Xcel Energy. Price Electric distributes electric power from the substation to the member/owner over 1,800 miles of distribution lines. Dairyland Power Cooperative is owned by the twenty-four distribution cooperatives they serve, just as Price Electric is owned by its members. A member of Price Electric's board also serves as director on Dairyland's board of directors. Dairyland owns and operates generating plants along the Mississippi River which provide the electric needs for about 274,000 consumers through the twenty-four distribution systems that they serve.
