MiEnergy is a member-owned electric distribution cooperative serving southeastern Minnesota and northeast Iowa. Founded in 1936 when electricity was not available to rural residents, locals banded together to build lines to their homes and farms. The cooperative has prospered by providing members with high-quality energy services at competitive rates and expanded services.
