Serving the industrial, wind and solar, and municipal utility markets.

For 15 years Utilities Plus Energy Services (UPES) has been working within a variety of different industries and markets. From power plants and mining facilities, to municipal utility substations and wind farms, we offer a full-range of electrical maintenance services, as well as electrical engineering and design.


Our founders had decades of experience working with industrial power plants, mining operations, government buildings and more within the industrial market before forming UPES in 2000. And the industrial market has continued to be our specialty, and is certainly the busiest area of our business.

From relay testing to commissioning, our technicians and engineers perform a variety of different services for our customers. Some of the companies we work with include 3M, Flint Hills Resources, Train Corporation and Cummins Power Generation.

Wind and Solar

With alternative energies making a big boom, we added solar and wind farm electrical maintenance services to our bag in 2009. We mostly work with builders as the go-to substation commissioning and collector system commissioning experts. We frequently win projects with Mortenson Construction and Wanzek Construction, and have worked with a variety of others.

Municipal Utilities

Our work with municipal utilities is two-fold. Not only do we work with cities to ensure that their electrical systems for power are in proper working order, but we also work within their water treatment and water waste plants. Our type of work we do with municipalities is vast, but some of the most common services are generator automation and maintenance, and substation maintenance, automation, construction or design.

Many of our long-time customers are in our home state of Minnesota and include: the Elk River Municipal Utilities, Springfield Public Utilities, Delano Municipal Utilities and Moorhead Public Service.
