Goodhue County Coop News
*** Members in the Zumbrota, Mazeppa and Pine Island area (fed by our Lena substation) have been experiencing momentary outages or 'blinks' over the past week or so; This is being caused by an Xcel Energy Transmission issue that they are working to resolve. In many cases Xcel Energy owns the transmission lines connected to our substations. This is one of those cases. Unfortunately we don't have direct control over this issue, but we wanted to alert our members to the situation. Thank you! ***
April 9th is Lineman Appreciation Day!
A day to say thank you to those who keep the power flowing to our homes and businesses day in and day out. Thank them for bravely going out into the storm when everyone else seeks shelter. Thank them for leaving their families behind to bring power back to you and your family in the worst conditions. Thank them for doing these things with pride and without complaint. We want to recognize our lineman for all they do each and every day!
Thank you to all of our members who attended the 81st Annual Meeting! Over 300 people enjoyed Dad's Belgian Waffles for breakfast. We appreciated the participation in the business meeting as well. Some even went home with prizes - we gave away quite a few of them. It's member participation that makes the cooperative model work!
doing something no energy provider has ever done.
