This should be straight-forward.

You have a corporate author, as  opposed to an individual, for example "Minnesota Power" is your author, not a "John Smith." Your parenthetical reference will always reflect & track back to your reference list - so, you probably will have a citation like (and I am making this up for example's sake ...)

Minnesota Power. (2011). Minnesota Power annual report, 2011. Duluth, MN: Author.

Depending on how your sentence/paragraph is written, you need up to three parts for the parenthetical reference - author, date, and sometimes the page number. A possible parenthetical reference might be as simple as (Minnesota Power, 2011, p. 7).

Use the following CSS library page for an explanation of a parenthetical reference, and examples of how, depending on the way you are writing, to create your parenthetical reference -

Good luck with the rest of the semester.
