Our history

Black Hills Energy historyBeginning with the Black Hills Gold Rush, generations of families have relied on us. And we’ve been ready.

We were there when electric lights first lit up the night in Deadwood. We helped fuel a changing economy and experienced how the modern miracle of energy can change how we live.

Since 1883 energy has moved us forward. And it will shape the future.

This book commemorates the first 135 years of Black Hills Corporation. We have a proud history of change, progress, and growth through both good and challenging times.
