Be safe when planting

Spring is a natural time to plant new bushes and trees, and make other landscaping changes at the beginning of the growing season. As you plant or transplant, make sure to keep electric reliability and safety in mind. Call 811 before you dig to ensure you won't hit any utility services. >more

Be safe around power lines--even if they're down

Downed power lines can look relatively harmless, but donít be fooled. They likely carry an electric current strong enough to cause serious injury or possibly death. >more

National Pollinator Week is June 18-24

Dairyland is the founding member of the Electric Power Research Instituteís Power-in-Pollinator Initiative, which is the largest pollinator collaboration in North America. Dairyland is dedicated to protecting natural resources through sustainable practices and environmental stewardship.

Pollinator gardens are being created at 18 of Dairylandís solar energy facilities in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa and Illinois. SoCore Energy and CMS Energy, the solar project developers, are using native seed mixes of grasses and flowers to create beneficial bee and butterfly habitat at each site. When complete later this year, a total of nearly 250 acres of new pollinator habitat will be established at the 18 sites.

Dairyland is also moving forward with plans to create pollinator habitat at three of its substations. Pollinator gardens were seeded by Kulig Contracting (Whitehall, Wis.) earlier this month on two, one-acre substation sites in Wisconsin. Prairie Restorations, Inc., ( Princeton, Minn.) will seed a third, 3.5 acre substation site in Minnesota this fall.
