Basin Electric Power Co-Op Holding Annual Meeting

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Basin Electric Power Cooperative is hosting more than 1,000 people from a nine-state region at its annual meeting in North Dakota's capital city.

The theme for this year's meeting is "Member Owned, Member Driven." It's scheduled Wednesday and Thursday at the Bismarck Event Center.

Basin Electric CEO and General Manager Paul Sukut and North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple are among the scheduled speakers.

Bismarck-based Basin Electric supplies power to 137 rural electric systems in the Dakotas, Wyoming, Minnesota, Montana, Colorado, New Mexico, Iowa and Nebraska. Those systems deliver power to about 2.8 million consumers.
