Energy and farming runs in their blood. Gerald Wolf has worked at Basin Electric’s Antelope Valley Station near Beulah, ND, since 1982. His son, Ryan, works at the Dakota Gasification Company’s Great Plains Synfuels Plant next door. Together, they’re building on a legacy of generations who have farmed on this very land — land that has been mined for its abundant lignite coal resources and fully reclaimed to its original condition.

“I’m proud to work for an organization that has given back to the land that has given my family so much.” ~ Ryan Wolf

Thank you to the men and women dedicated to the responsible stewardship of our fruitful landscape, the ones who so carefully tend to and harvest our natural resources, preserving them for generations to come.

Happy Earth Day from Basin Electric.
