Dunn Energy Cooperative Opens to the Public
As of Monday, May 3, 2021, we are open again to the public and excited to see you again! We will continue to wear masks when we wait on you and ask that you return the favor as well. If the number of cases in our service territory begins to rise, we may close again to the public. As for right now, however, we plan to remain open to serve your needs.
Unfortunately, our opening back up coincides with our new standby generator installation. In order to complete the installation, the power in our building will be shut off for most of the day on Wednesday, May 5. This means that we will be closed to the public that day. This also means that our payment servers will be down. This means SmartHub and phone payments will be unavailable for the day.
May is Electrical Safety Month!
In celebration of Electrical Safety Month, we are holding a poster contest for local third graders. If you have a third-grader and they want to color us a safety-themed poster they could be eligible to win a $25 gift certificate. The winner will then be sent to the statewide contest for a chance to win more great prizes! Posters must be in the cooperative office by May 17, 2021.

SunDEC Community Solar went online in February of 2017. We started with 400 units for sale. Today, we have less than a third of the array left to sell. The cost of the 250-watt units drops monthly, based on the remaining length of the contract on the system. If you are interested in purchasing the output of a portion of our community solar, please call the office and talk with one of our knowledgable staff members.
How do you know if Community Solar is for you? Ask yourself these three things:
Do you want to support renewable energy?
Do you lack the yard or roof space to install a solar array?
Do you live in a heavily wooded area where solar wouldn't work well?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, give us a call!
You can see the real-time production of SunDEC on our Renewable Energy production page as well as the the offsets it has created.
If you are interested in seeing what our whole renewable energy portfolio looks like, you can visit Dairyland Power Cooperative. There you will see that a good portion of our distributed generation comes from solar, wind, hydro, and landfill-to-gas energy.
