The East Grand Forks Water and Light Department is one of twelve members in the Minnesota Municipal Power Agency (MMPA). MMPA not only supplies reliable and affordable power for the community, but also assists municipalities with providing support for policy regulations in the energy industry. We have been a proud MMPA member since November of 2014.
The East Grand Forks Water and Light Department receives a large portion of its electric supply through Western Area Power Administration (WAPA). We are part of WAPA's Upper Great Plains Region (UGP), which provides hydropower supply from eight dams and powerplants of the Pick-Sloan Missouri Basin Program.
