Luverne Municipal Electric

 

Luverne Municipal Electric is a significant enterprise in the City's overall operations. The City's power requirements are met from two sources, Western Area Power Agency and Missouri River Energy Services. Luverne's electric utility rates are among the lowest in Minnesota. With long term low cost hydro and coal based electric power and a well maintained and planned local distribution system, the Luverne Municipal Electric Utility continues to be an asset to the City and its citizens.
