Your Local Electric Cooperative
Freeborn Mower Cooperative Services (FMCS) has a long history of providing honest-to-goodness value. We are a member-owned electric cooperative providing energy to over 18,000 members-owners primarily located in Freeborn and Mower Counties in Southeast Minnesota. Our service area covers approximately 1335 square miles, which includes 2967 miles of distribution line and 27 substations.
We are proud to be a Touchstone Energy Cooperative serving our members with integrity, accountability, innovation and commitment to excellent customer service, outstanding value and innovative services designed to meet your changing needs. As a national alliance of electric cooperatives, we are part of the largest electric utility network in the nation, providing power to over 40 million member-owners in 47 states, and serving more than 80% of the geographic area of the U.S.
Our electric energy is supplied by Dairyland Power Cooperative. Dairyland supplies the wholesale electric requirements of 25 electric distribution cooperatives and 14 municipal utilities. These utilities in turn sell energy at retail to nearly half a million people in a five state service area. Dairyland Power is owned by FMCS and 25 other electric distribution cooperatives.
Local ownership and a deep sense of accountability to our member-owners and communities are key aspects to meeting your energy needs - not just today, but for many years to come.
