The cooperative story starts in the mid-1930's with the creation of the Rural Electrification Administration (REA). On January 1, 1936, after the REA became law and Wisconsin Governor Phill LaFollette had created the State of Wisconsin Rural Electrification Coordination Office, the REA Cooperative in Dunn County was organized.The formal Articles of Incorporation of the cooperative were filed with the state on April 22,1937.

Today, our 27 employees serve nearly 10,000 accounts. We are your local Touchstone Energy Cooperative, and promise to serve you with integrity, accountability, innovation, and a committment to community.
