As a cooperative, Great River Energy is motivated by listening to and providing services for our member-owner cooperatives and their member consumers. Together, we’re working hard to build awareness and encourage the use of electric vehicles (EVs).
Great River Energy and its member cooperatives helped establish Minnesota’s first electric corridor. Charging infrastructure along Interstate 35 allows more electric vehicle owners to reach scenic northern Minnesota, a common road trip in the state.

Great River Energy’s member cooperatives offer free wind energy to fuel electric vehicles owned by cooperative members. The Revolt program dedicates wind energy to completely cover the electricity used to fuel an electric vehicle for the life of the car. The program began in 2015 and has been extended each year due to its popularity.
Along with our member -owner cooperatives we have hosted these events to spark interest in EVs. Research shows that widespread EV adoption will play a role in increasing energy security, improving fuel economy, lowering consumers’ overall fuel costs and reducing emissions.
We think it’s important to listen to a variety of stakeholders and are participating in Drive Electric Minnesota, a coalition of groups that work collaboratively to bring electric vehicles and plug-in charging infrastructure here.
