People you know – Service you trust

Rates

Residential electric costs in Muscoda are lower than many of Wisconsin’s investor-owned utilities.

Because community-owned utilities do not operate to make a profit, you pay only for the cost of service. This allows us to provide highly competitive electric rates.
