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.

Electricity changed almost everything for Donald and Curtis Jungling. While it didn’t stop the runaway horses, it did bring the “potty house” inside. It also brought the girls.

Cold weather and the heating season are here. Is your electric meter breaker on? 

Members, if your home or business has a sub-meter for an off-peak or all-electric heat rate, please make sure your heat meter breaker is turned on inside your electric panel. If the breaker is off, your electric heat credit will not be reflected on your bill. 

Off-peak rates run Oct. 1 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.
