Basin Electric employees providing service beyond electricity

Basin Electric encourages service beyond providing electricity, and it’s not uncommon to see the co-op’s employees doing hands-on volunteer work. This spring was no exception.

Employees from Basin Electric and Dakota Gas shared their time and abilities in service to the communities where their families and the cooperative’s members work and live. It’s about ensuring strong, stable, and growing communities for current and future generations of co-op members and employees.

Basin Electric’s Headquarters employees packed almost 900 backpacks of food for kids in the Bismarck-Mandan, ND, area as part of Missouri Slope Areawide United Way’s Backpack Program May 18. This is the second year employees have pitched in to fill backpacks for kids who would otherwise not have access to regular, healthy meals over the weekend.

More than 50 employees from Dakota Gasification Company, Basin Electric’s Antelope Valley Station, and The Coteau Property Company’s Freedom Mine joined forces April 27 to clean up the environment and give back to the community. The volunteers cleaned up an eight-mile stretch of ditches from the intersection of Highways 200 and 49 near Beulah, ND, to the Freedom Mine. The event is held around Earth Day each year.
