Economic development is crucial to rural Iowa

Harrison County Rural Electric Cooperative (REC) is an active participant in local economic development endeavors. We are committed to the communities and areas we serve, and we contribute and participate in many economic development projects. 

Harrison County REC works closely with local area development organizations. Iowa Area Development Group (IADG)  is an organization formed in 1985 by Iowa’s rural electric cooperatives. The purpose of IADG is to specialize in economic development and to assist projects in financing, securing state and federal grants and loans, and the marketing of those projects. IADG provides cooperatives an additional resource as we work to secure electric loans, create jobs, and enhance our local economy. 

Your cooperative also works closely with our power supplier Northwest Iowa Power Cooperative (NIPCO)  in Le Mars, IA. NIPCO has a variety of economic development assistance packages and they are always eager to work with prospective ventures.
