Generators

The generator program consists of a special electric rate of $.079 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 our Member Services Department and they will help you choose which size best fits your needs.

If the generator is not available during control periods, a demand charge will be applied to your electric bill.
