When a group of neighbors banded together in 1937 to bring power to their homes and farms, they could never have anticipated the fruit that their efforts would bear.
We’ve grown from those first 117 members to more than 50,000 members, from a tiny rural utility to a business that serves a variety of residential and commercial members. We now have 4,500 miles of overhead and underground power lines, and we serve the entire Flathead Valley and Libby, along with several hundred members along the Montana-Wyoming border.
Flathead Electric is now the second largest electric utility in Montana, ready for the challenges and changes of the 21st Century. But one thing hasn’t changed. We’re still neighbors; a local company owned by those we serve.
