Q & A



Be aware of utility payment scams! If someone calls you demanding immediate payment or asking for your banking information, it is not from North Itasca Electric Cooperative. Don't be fooled by caller ID numbers. Scammers can 'spoof' numbers and appear to be calling from someone else's phone number when, in fact, they are not. Please contact your local law enforcement authorities and report any suspicious call, so that they are able to gather more information regarding the phone number that is calling and trying to pull this scam.

Call Gopher State One

Before you dig, call Gopher State at 1-800-252-1166. They will contact all area utilities to determine the locations of utility owned underground cables, lines and pipes. Keep in mind that only utility owned lines will be marked, so customers need to be cautious of any customer owned underground electric or gas lines that may be located between their meter pole and house.
