Rolling Hills Electric Cooperative, Inc. broke ground on a centrazlied facility July 22, 2015. Employees, board members, media and other dignitaries were on location in Beloit to take part in the groundbreaking. In August 2013, a vote by the membership to centralize the three exisiting locations (Mankato, Ellsworth, Belleville) allowed the board and management to progress with the development of the new building. Initial discussions about a centalized faciltiy began as the board looked for opporunites to reduce expenses and maintain affordable energy rates for members. Completion of the building is projected to be May 2016.
