SPU’s service goes beyond providing electric and water utilities.
We extend our resources and knowledge to partner with our community schools and local organizations. These collaborations provide hands-on, interactive learning opportunities that inspire our youth and make a positive impact within our own neighborhoods.

SPU also partners with our power provider, Minnesota Municipal Power Agency (MMPA) contributing to our renewable resource goals with local wind generation.
A 46-megawatt generation facility in our own backyard provides a long-term energy supply asset for Shakopee with local interconnection that avoids high voltage transmission costs and increased local reliability during times of peak energy use.
