Need a review of your service?
Is there a new home, farm building, or grain handling system in your future?
Do your construction plans include a grain handling system, farm shop, or a new home? Or possibly, you are planning to make the switch to electric heat. If you need service to a new location, will be increasing your electric load, or if it looks like your new construction site may be too close to a power line, please notify Dakota Valley Electric Cooperative at once.
Dakota Valley's district engineer Brad Lunneborg or the outpost foreman in your area will gather needed information and work with you on the requirements of your electrical service.
Often, we will meet with you to discuss your needs and determine whether the electric service and power lines should be relocated to serve you efficiently and safely. And we'll check the metering assembly and transformer to determine if it is large enough, or whether it must be upgraded to handle your additional electrical needs. If power lines must be extended to a new service or service upgrade, we will check the distances and calculate the anticipated member-investment for the line extension.
Please call Dakota Valley as soon as your construction plans are definite so our operations department can schedule the work and make sure your electric service is ready when you need it. You may reach Dakota Valley Electric at 800-342-4671.
