Continuing load growth in the Bakken spurs project construction

construction_north-killdeer-loop_vertBasin Electric’s member load growth in the Williston Basin might’ve slowed – but it’s still growing.

That being the case, work continues on several generation and transmission projects, such as Lonesome Creek Station, Pioneer Generation Station, Antelope Valley Station to Neset and North Killdeer Loop transmission projects, and emission control projects.

“The last few years have been an interesting and challenging time for us,” says Matthew Greek, senior vice president of Engineering and Construction. “Member growth has driven a seemingly continuous stream of transmission and generation work to support it; our continued efforts to plan for a successful future at Dakota Gasification Company gave us the urea project; and a torrent of new and more challenging environmental regulations has led to a variety of projects at each of our coal facilities.”
