Kandiyohi Power Cooperative (KPC) was organized in November, 1935 under the cooperative laws in the State of Minnesota to furnish, improve, and expand electric services to its members in the West Central area of Minnesota. Authority to form such a cooperative came from the passage of the Rural Electrification Act which was signed by President Franklin Rooselvelt on May 11, 1935. KPC is governed by an elected nine-person board of directors who establish the policies of the cooperative, and hires the CEO.

The first distribution line was energized on October 25, 1939 from a substation owned by Northern States Power located at New London, MN. KPC presently serves over 8200 members in Kandiyohi, Swift, Stearns, Renville, and Chippewa Counties. Our customers are primarily residential along with seasonal, farm accounts, and several hundred small commercial accounts.

In May of 2007, the headquarters was moved to the Touchstone Business Centre at 8605 47th Ste. NE, Touchstone Drive, Spicer, MN 56288. Currently, KPC has 31 employees.
