The Sioux Valley Energy Board of Directors unveiled the design of the Cooperative’s 32,500-square foot facility expansion project located in Brandon at a celebration event on Aug. 22.

Sioux Valley Energy directors and employees celebrated its Brandon Service Center expansion project with community leaders on Aug. 22.

“This facility expansion signals the future,” said Tim McCarthy, Sioux Valley Energy CEO and General Manager. “One of the core principles of this Cooperative is commitment to community. We are committed to enhancing the quality of life and economic health of this entire region and plan to continue investments that will provide safe, reliable, and robust power to the area. Sioux Valley Energy’s facility expansion in Brandon is one step in preparing the Cooperative to serve its members well into the future.”

Work began on the 32,500-square foot facility expansion in June 2023 and is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2024. 

“The expansion is part of the Cooperative’s long-range plan that may eventually include additional Co-op-owned facilities in western Minnehaha County,” McCarthy continued. “Over the next 25 years, the Co-op expects to add an additional 22,000-plus members and between 50 and 60 megawatts of electric load on its system just in Minnehaha County.”

To meet that growing need, Sioux Valley Energy and its power supplier, East River Electric, will be investing an estimated $55 million in electric infrastructure in Minnehaha County over the next five years.

RML Architects and Hegg Construction are working on the design and construction of the facility, which will add offices, truck and wash bays, additional space for the warehouse, and a training facility for employees.
