‘At the end of the line’: Co-op members Le Roy and Twila Dean

Twila and Le Roy Dean

Twila and Le Roy Dean.

The cooperative business model is a wonderful thing: it allows Basin Electric to focus on the person at the end of the line.

Retired ranchers Le Roy and Twila Dean, Belle Fourche, SD, are two such people. The Deans are members of Butte Electric Cooperative, Newell, SD, a distribution cooperative and Class C member of Basin Electric. In turn, Butte Electric is served by Rushmore Electric Power Cooperative, Rapid City, SD, a generation and transmission cooperative and Class A member of Basin Electric.

Read about the Deans’ memories of first getting electricity and why they appreciate their local electric cooperative in the November/December 2014 issue of Basin Today: Development to benefit all members.
