Social Impact - Great River Energy

We’re better, together

We provide a strong foundation for the communities we serve by powering them with affordable, reliable, cleaner electricity. So kids learn in schools, so businesses run smoothly, so families live happily in their homes. And we don’t stop there. Because we believe when communities work together, we all do better.

How we help

Beyond our energy offering, we’re focused on providing support in these key areas:

  • Community giving

    We give back to the communities we serve and live in, and we empower our employees to do the same. Whether they want to raise funds or volunteer their time.
  • Supporting local economies

    From spending millions of dollars on local purchases to supporting the development and expansion of local businesses. We choose to invest in our local economies to help them grow.
  • Taking care of employees

    Our employees are our greatest asset. We truly believe in helping them and their families live their best lives, which is why we focus on making our culture second to none.
  • Looking forward

    Positioning ourselves to successfully support our member-owner cooperatives as people’s needs change over time.
