Clearwater-Polk Electric is the Katolight Corporation Distributor (MTU Energy) for the northwest corner of Minnesota. We work with some of our neighboring cooperatives and are able to offer generators and special rates to our members.
The generator program consists of a special electric rate of $.039 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.
During the three-year warranty period, CPE will service the generator on an annual basis. After that period, a maintenance contract may be purchased to ensure your generator is available when you need it. The maintenance contract will vary depending on the size of the generator. If the generator is not available during control periods you will be billed a demand charge.
