Energy Sources

Runestone Electric Association has a diverse energy mix that allows us to serve our members with safe, reliable, and affordable electricity. We receive most of our electricity from Great River Energy, and we also receive power from WAPA (Western Area Power Administration). The energy from WAPA is all hydropower, which adds more carbon-free power to our energy mix.
