Stay Basin: The cooperative cares about you and yours

Ronda Warner

Sometimes, you just know you’re in the right place.

Ronda Warner has had that gut feeling since 2012, when she started working as a utility operator at Basin Electric’s Dry Fork Station.

She had worked for the cooperative’s Laramie River Station prior, starting off as laborer and eventually working with the facility’s scrubber system.

It’s easy to see Warner loves working for Basin Electric, and she describes joining Dry Fork as an outstanding opportunity.

“I’m thankful every day that I have this job,” Warner says. “Basin has always been there for me.”

Join a cooperative that values family

Most recently, Warner has experienced support from Basin Electric on the home front. When she and her husband decided to adopt two boys, she says the cooperative allowed the couple to attend the meetings necessary to welcome home their new loved ones.

That’s the thing about Basin Electric: in addition to providing affordable and reliable power to its members, the cooperative values safety, family and commitment to community just as much.

“They’re very family oriented,” she says.

Basin Electric provides great benefits, values your skills

Warner keeps it simple when describing her work at Basin Electric. Life is good.

“The pay is good and the benefits are good,” she says. “I have a sense of security.”

With great benefits comes a workforce that values her professional expertise. For Warner, much of that atmosphere comes from great management.

“I’m really happy to be able to work for my supervisor, Ronny Youngs,” she says, adding it’s great when cooperative supervisors are easy to talk to and value their employees’ insight. “He’s a very good boss.”

As the holidays approach, Warner has a warm heart and a cheerful spirit. She’s very glad to be part of the Basin Electric family, and thankful to be able to enjoy time with her husband, adopted sons and their grandma this holiday season.
