July 2016 Storm

     Mother Nature dealt us a nasty blow in the North Central Minnesota Lakes area on Thursday, July 21 that challenged over 10,000 of our members, 50 crewmen to an endurance test of a total of 140 hours of battling heat, downed power lines, major tree damage and learning how to live without electricity for many.

Electric Safety Warning for Poke’man Go Players

Crow Wing Power and other electric utilities are warning Pokeman Go players to please stay away from any electric substations and other utility equipment. This new smartphone game has caught on quickly that sends players to catch a Pokeman in real world areas.
Pokeman can show up anywhere . . . grocery stores, parking lots, middle of nowhere and we have learned, even our substations. We have no control of where they potentially could be, so safety for these players is a big concern.

Is It Really A Community Wind Program?

Members of Crow Wing Power have recently received a letter from Arcadia Power to “join your neighbor’s in Minnesota’s first Community Wind Program.” You may be asking what this program is. We have put together some Q&A to help answer some of your questions.

What is this program?

Are you Interested in a Community Solar Project?

Providing Information and Getting Members Input

Crow Wing Power is in the process of educating our members about what a Community Solar or (photovoltaic) project might look like and cost. We are conducting surveys in February 2016 to determine how many of our members would pay to participate in a project. 

We would like to provide this information to give our members a general idea of what a Community Solar project might mean for Crow Wing Power members. Details are not finalized.
