Energy Usage Guide

In 1935, the introduction of electricity set a new standard of living for rural Minnesota residents. In homes, farms and businesses, the newest electric services brought light to the dark and heat to the cold.

Since then, electricity and its uses have multiplied so much that we hardly ever think about how often we use it. Even though we can't touch it or see it, electricity is always there ready to make our lives a little easier whether we're using it to wash dishes, dry grain or do our taxes on the computer. In fact, it seems that every day a new electrotechnology is introduced that will make our lives that much better.
