Hawkeye REC’s wholesale electric power supplier is Dairyland Power Cooperative. Dairyland, a Touchstone Energy Cooperative, was formed in December 1941. Headquartered in La Crosse, Wis., Dairyland provides the wholesale electrical requirements for 25 distribution cooperatives and 16 municipal utilities. These cooperatives and municipals, in turn, supply the energy needs of more than a half-million people in the four-state service area. Today, the cooperative’s generating resources include coal, natural gas, hydro, wind, landfill gas, biomass, animal waste and solar. Dairyland delivers electricity via 3,100 miles of transmission lines and nearly 300 substations located throughout the system’s 44,500 square mile service area.
