Every day, we want to be “improving life with energy.” We produce, market and deliver the vital electricity, coal, oil and natural gas that our customers need. Through our efforts, products and services, we also share our personal energy to strengthen our communities and support growth and development.
You’re probably familiar with the expression “A light bulb went on,” meaning someone just had a good idea. Well that’s what happened – quite literally – on the border between Montana and North Dakota in 1924. Montana-Dakota Utilities Co. was created that year to serve a handful of small farm communities in the area. Since then the company has grown into a large regional energy supplier. During those years of growth, we’ve changed our name a few times, acquired a number of smaller companies and progressed side-by-side with those we serve.
