Welcome to our website!

Capital Electric Cooperative is committed to providing safe, reliable and affordable electric power at a reasonable cost to all member-owners.

With headquarters in Bismarck, N.D., and a service center in Wing, Capital Electric Cooperative has provided electricity to consumers in Burleigh and southern Sheridan counties since 1948. We also serve portions of Emmons, Kidder and McLean. We take pride in being progressive yet friendly, service-oriented yet energy conscious.

As a cooperative, we are owned and governed by the members we serve. Our directors on the board are elected by the membership, so they have a vested interest in the operation of the cooperative. Learn more about how Capital Electric proudly returns its margins back to the members it serves in the form of Capital Credits.

Members, thanks for attending YOUR annual meeting!

In 1990, Moni (Lembke) Kranz had a role in “Annie Get Your Gun” — the very first production of Sleepy Hollow Theatre and Arts Park in Bismarck. In 2009, her daughter, Megan, had two roles in the “Wizard of Oz.” As Sleepy Hollow celebrates its 25th anniversary, the women compare their theatre experiences, and share why costumes and sets may change — but the guest experience remains the same.

Capital Electric Cooperative directors, managers and employees thank you, our member-owners, for attending our 68th annual meeting of the membership on June 3 at the Ramkota Hotel in Bismarck. More than 1,000 members attended to learn about co-op issues; to cast their vote and elect three members to serve on the board of directors; to collect a capital credit check if they qualified; and to enjoy entertainment and eat a free meal.

The co-op’s board of directors approved a capital credit retirement of all unretired capital credits from 1998 plus estate retirements totaling more than $1,033,000. Prior to the business meeting, Capital Electric employees distributed checks. Unclaimed checks were mailed to members who were unable to attend.

During the business meeting, three members were elected to serve three-year terms on the board of directors. Rodney Eckroth of Bismarck was re-elected to represent District 1, Kyle Hilken was re-elected to represent District 2 and William Patrie was also elected to represent District 2. We congratulate Rodney and Kyle, and welcome Bill to the board. We also thank Rex Hollenbeck for serving as a board director for the past six years, and thank Curtis Jundt for running for a seat on the board.

We will redeem capital credits for those members on the following list who notify us prior to Dec. 1, 2014. Notice is hereby given that any of the aforementioned unclaimed capital credits outstanding after Dec. 1, 2014 will be forfeited pursuant to Section 10-15-34.1 and 10-15-23 of the North Dakota Century Code. 1ST NOTICE – JULY 2014

Members, do you contribute to Operation Round Up? If not, opt in today!

In this voluntary program, co-op members round up their monthly electric bills to the next dollar, and donate their change to worthy individuals, groups and organizations in their respective co-op’s service area. The money is placed in a trust where it accumulates, and the trust’s board of directors — who are also co-op members — meet regularly to review applications and disburse funds in the form of grants. All of the money raised by members stays in their local communities. On average, participating members donate about $6 a year. The donation is tax-deductible, and members who participate will receive a summary on their last billing statement of the year.

Capital Electric Cooperative implemented the Operation Round Up program in August 1997. Since then, more than 31 million pennies in Operation Round Up funds have been donated and spread across the co-op’s service area.

Members, please support this worthy program. Call the co-op at 701-223-1513 to verify your participation or to opt in if you do not currently participate. Every member’s small donation truly does add up to make a big difference.
