Basin Electric uses beetles to control leafy spurge at Glenharold Mine

Each year at our Annual Meeting, we share a video focused on different facets of cooperative social responsibility at Basin Electric and in our membership.

You can find what social responsibility means to Basin Electric within the seven cooperative principles. We stand for working for our members. We stand for democracy, education, and cooperation among cooperatives. We stand for our communities – filling the needs we see – just as we did all the way back to building our own power poles and power plants to bring electricity to our farms and ranches.

We will be sharing pieces of the cooperative social responsibility video here over the next couple of months, starting with the segment focused on civic and community betterment.

Basin Electric has been using leafy spurge beetles at the Glenharold Mine since 1997 to help battle noxious weeds.

We interviewed Kelly Krabbenhoft, owner KDK Consulting and Mike Murray, manager of property and right of way for Basin Electric. They talk about the importance of being a good landowner and how important it is to be more environmentally sensitive.
