Dakota Energy Cooperative is a true cooperative. It is a private, non-profit electric utility owned by the members it serves. Our membership covers a range of residential, farm, business, commercial, and industrial consumers in Beadle, Hand and Hyde counties, as well as portions of other counties. Your participation is vital to the cooperative’s continued success. It’s the leadership you elect – your Board of Directors – that guides the operation of the cooperative and sets policies that put people first. The members ultimately control the cooperative – people working for people.
