DPC Bus Tour
Chippewa Valley Electric Cooperative, in conjunction with Dairyland Power Cooperative,
often sponsors an bus tour for our members. This trip takes you to the La Crosse, Wisconsin area to tour Dairyland's headquarters and one of Dairyland's generation facilities.
Dairyland was formed in December 1941. Today, the cooperative’s generating stations (coal, hydro, natural gas, landfill gas, animal waste-to-energy) have more than 1,100 megawatt capacity.
Dairyland delivers electricity via more than 3,100 miles of transmission lines and nearly 300 substations located throughout the system’s 44,500 square mile service area.
This tour is usually held in April. Typically the coach bus leaves Cornell at approximately 7:15 a.m. and arrives back to the Cornell area for dinner around
5 p.m. Lunch is provided at Dairyland Power's cafeteria.
Check the Calendar of Events on upper right of our web pages if a tour is planned it will be listed there. We also will send notice in the March/April
newsletters, or the March/April RE NEWS when looking for members interested in attending the tour.
