Capital Electric Cooperative is committed to providing safe, reliable and efficient 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 our consumer-members 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.

Add reliability and stability with electric heat 

If you heat your home with propane and had to fill the tank in late January, you probably experienced sticker shock. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration website at www.eia.gov, the cost of propane in North Dakota on Jan. 27 was $4.50 a gallon. One month prior, it cost slightly more than $2. To find out how you can incorporate an electric heat product, and get on Capital Electric’s off-peak heat rate and start saving money, click here.

Off-peak rates run through April 30
Off-peak electric heat utilizes the concept of a dual-energy heating system, which simply uses two sources of fuel rather than one. With off-peak electric heat, electricity is the primary heat source. Using a control system, Capital Electric can switch from one heating source to another automatically. This maximizes efficiency and allows your co-op to offer you lower heating rates! For more information on off-peak electric heat and Capital Electric’s heating program and incentives, click here.

Thank a lineman!

Capital Electric Cooperative is recognizing April 18, 2014, as National Lineman Appreciation Day to honor the hardworking men who work in often-challenging conditions to restore power and protect the public’s safety.

“Electric linemen do not often receive the recognition they deserve,” says Rick Dressler, Capital Electric’s system supervisor. “They work all hours of the day, often in hazardous conditions far from their families, going above and beyond to restore power to their communities. Our linemen, as well as linemen from all across the nation, truly deserve this special day of recognition.”

Capital Electric Cooperative currently employs 12 linemen in Bismarck and Wing. We invite members to take a moment to thank a lineman for the work they do.
