2018 Member Appreciation Day and Ballots

Crow Wing Power's 81st Annual meeting and Member Appreciation Day was Saturday, June 9 this year.  Ballots for Director Elections  were sent to members May 9.  

A total of 4,798 ballots were cast in this year’s Board of Directors election.

Phone Scam Alert

May 9, We received a call from a Minnesota Power customer that someone claiming to be from Crow Wing Power called them to demand an immediate payment or their electricity would be shut off.  Periodically we hear reports of this type of scam.  We will never call and ask for your credit card number over the phone.  Beware and always call us if you are unsure. 

Planned Summer PCA Rate Increase Cancelled

The Board of Directors voted at their April 20th meeting to cancel the scheduled summer power cost adjustment (PCA) increase.  The summer PCA, scheduled to increase to 2.0 cents/kWh for electricity used in the months of June, July and August, will continue at the current rate of 1.5 cents/kWh.

The Board decision to eliminate the summer PCA increase is primarily due to revenue exceeding budget projections for the first quarter of 2018.  Electricity sales were higher than anticipated due to the colder weather we experienced.

Crow Wing Power (CWP) is always looking at utilizing proven technology to improve our service to members. Therefore, we have been addressing our current end-of-life automated metering system and recently signed a contract for an updated automated metering system.

For those members interested in member-owned electric power generation, we appreciate the opportunity to work with you. To assist our members, we have developed a streamlined process for safe, reliable, efficient, and cost-effective interconnection of small renewable energy systems.

Long Time Board Member Passes Away

We received the sad news recently that our long-time Board Member and friend, Ken Miller, passed away on Wednesday, August 30.  Ken was a dedicated Board Director for 32 years, longer than any of the current Directors, so we all knew him well.
