Our Communities

How we're protecting our communities

Just as we'll continue to maintain reliable electric service in our region, we’ll continue to put the health and safety of our communities first. We always have and we always will.

As always, if there’s an outage or emergency, our crews will respond as safely and quickly as possible. They're truly our unsung heroes.

Through it all, we continue our critical maintenance and construction work to maintain the stability of our national electric grid. While it's indeed a challenging time, we've still got exciting—and important—projects in the works, including our Astoria Station and Merricourt Wind Energy Center projects.

Being good corporate citizens

It’s important to us to participate in our communities to strengthen the viability of our region. This year the Otter Tail Power Company Foundation is focusing its charitable giving on COVID-19 relief. With several communities potentially experiencing hardships related to the pandemic, we’re targeting our donations to help where it’s needed most.

Supporting our service area through this crisis remains a top priority.
