Developer Construction

Welcome to Minnesota Power’s Developers construction page. Our goal is to provide safe, reliable electric service. To help us do a better job for you, we need to know your electrical needs as early as possible, please follow these simple steps:

Once all required application information is received a Minnesota Power’s Distribution Service Representative will contact you to set up a site visit and determine the following:

  • The availability of electric utilities for the development.

  • Easements and road right way (R/W) requirements.
  • Plat maps and engineering plans of all other utilities.
  • Roadway designs.
  • Conduit crossings in road bed.
  • Any three phase electrical needs (lift pump stations).
  • Lighting needs.
  • Temporary power to site for construction phase of development.
  • Clear marking of all lot corners and any other important features (catch basins).
  • Date when grading will be within 6 inches of final grade.

All project requirements must be met before any site work will be scheduled with Minnesota Power construction crews.

Minnesota Power’s parent company, ALLETE, has entered an agreement to be acquired by a partnership led by Canada Pension Plan Investment Board and Global Infrastructure Partners and start the process to become a private company.

This transaction will not change our operations, strategy or shared purpose and values, and it is business as usual for all of us at Minnesota Power. Learn more at
