Basin Electric to hold 50th annual meeting today

Ron Harper, CEO of Basin Electric, will preside over his last annual meeting today. He retires at the end of the year.

Members of Tri-State’s board and senior management staff are in Bismarck, N.D., today to attend Basin Electric Power Cooperative’s 50th Annual Meeting scheduled to convene at 11:50 a.m. Mountain Time in the Ramkota Ballroom in Bismarck. Following the annual meeting, a celebration of Basin Electric’s 50th anniversary will be held beginning at 4:30 p.m. at the Bismarck Civic Center.

Tri-State’s history is intertwined with the North Dakota G&T as a partner in power production at the Missouri Basin Power Project (Laramie River Station), as a fellow founding member of Western Fuels Association and as a Class A member of Basin Electric, Tri-State also purchases a portion of its power from the Bismarck-based cooperative.

Basin Electric’s half-century milestone also marks the final year in which CEO and general manager, Ron Harper will serve at the helm of this successful G&T. Harper, who is a former manager of Tri-State member, Carbon Power & Light (Saratoga, Wyo.), will retire at the end of this year, after serving for 11 years as Basin Electric’s CEO.
