Greater Minnesota Transmission, LLC (GMT) works behind the scenes to build partnerships with local utilities or cooperatives to bring natural gas to communities located throughout rural Minnesota.
In 2013, GMT partnered with Xcel Energy. Since the beginning of that partnership, we are happy to have added the communities of Barnesville, Hitterdahl and Ulen, in addition to the Prairie Island Indian Community and Treasure Island Resort and Casino located just outside of Redwing, Minnesota.
Building on the partnership created between GMT and Community Co-op located in Lake Park, MN the rural communities of Twin Valley, Mahnomen, Fertile, Beltrami, Red Lake Falls and Gary are able to enjoy the benefits of natural gas. To learn more about natural gas service in these areas call 888-935-2281 or visit their website at: http://www.communitycoops.com/natural-gas-service-area.html
In 2016, United Natural Gas partnered with GMT to serve the communities of Lafayette and Courtland is Southern Minnesota. Expanding on that partnership UNG will be adding Jackpot Junction Casino and the Lower Sioux Indian Community in the fall of 2017.
