You know that rush when you hear about a cool new app, search it, and upload it to your phone? You can’t wait to see its features, what it can do and what you can learn.
When Jason Bartsch uploaded Capital Electric Cooperative’s SmartHub app, he knew what it was going to do. Not only is he a Capital Electric member-owner living just east of Bismarck, ND, but he’s also an employee at NISC (National Information Solutions Cooperative), an information technology cooperative based in Mandan, ND. Capital Electric is a Basin Electric Class C member.
As someone in the know about the technology – and aware of the power he holds as a cooperative member – Bartsch had been putting in friendly reminders to Capital Electric’s Paul Fitterer, the cooperative’s business manager, that the cooperative should upgrade to SmartHub.
Almost two years ago, Capital Electric started offering SmartHub to its members.
