About Us

On November 25, 1935, 17 area men met in Burbank to organize the first rural electric cooperative in South Dakota. This organization was known as Fairview Electric Association and was later renamed Clay-Union Electric. For over 80 years, Clay-Union Electric has been providing excellent customer service and reliable, cost efficient electricity to our members. Our cooperative is owned by those we serve.

Please look around and discover all the things your coop has to offer. If you have any questions or need more information, please contact us.
