Time to turn the lights on again

Our Energy Our Future

As the International Year of the Cooperative officially closes today at the United Nations, it’s time to refocus on the cooperative purpose.

About 75 years ago, our rural parents, grandparents and great-grandparents started a major revolution. They simply wanted electricity like the people in the cities were getting. So they pulled together, formed cooperatives, and made it happen.

The National Rural Electric Cooperative Association collaborated to put a video together on the spirit of electric cooperatives. Watch and imagine what could be next.

Last year was Basin Electric’s 50th anniversary of incorporation. You can find lots of history on the people who started this cooperative on our History pages: Original Incorporators
