The Upper Great Plains Region is one of four regions of the Western Area Power Administration.
UGP sells power in Iowa, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota to wholesale customers such as towns; rural electric cooperatives; public utility and irrigation districts; Federal, state, and military agencies; Native American tribes; investor-owned utilities; power marketers; U.S. Bureau of Reclamation; and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers customers.
Electric companies get their power, for consumers like you, from a variety of sources. Those sources include wholesale power providers such as Western, purchases and exchanges from neighboring utilities, and their own generation.
Upper Great Plains employees work around the clock to keep bulk power moving through the transmission system so that electricity ultimately reaches your home or business. (Learn More >> About UGP )
