The generator program consists of a special electric rate of $.043 per kwh for those members who purchase a generator large enough so CPE can shed the member's entire load during peak times. This helps reduce CPE's electric charges from Minnkota Power and the need for building new power plants in the future. Overall this helps strengthen your cooperative.

To find out more on this program, schedule an appointment with one of our member service representatives and they will help you choose which size best fits your needs and give you a free estimate.

If the generator is not available during control periods you will be billed a demand charge.
