Basin Electric fulfilled their commitment of a $49,000 pledge to the Mitchell Technical Institute (MTI) capital campaign recently. The check was presented by Kevin Tschosik, Basin Electric manager of distributed generation, to MTI President Greg Von Wald. Tschosik serves on MTI’s wind advisory board.

The cooperative made the donation, which is part of a $245,000 over five years commitment, to an endowment fund to support the MTI Foundation’s “Educating People, Empowering Communities” campaign.

The endowment has been established to support energy-related programs at MTI including Power Line Construction & Maintenance and Wind Turbine Technology. Proceeds from the fund will help provide upgrades to the programs’ curricula to ensure currency of the content and will assist with providing educational and professional experiences for faculty in order to keep their knowledge up to date with industry practices.

MTI’s capital campaign was launched in 2012.
