Basin Electric celebrates 60 years


May 5 marked 60 years since Basin Electric’s articles of incorporation were signed by 69 people from several states at the Patterson Hotel in Bismarck, North Dakota.

In an interview in 2018, Leroy Schecher, the last living original incorporator, who died on March 27, said, “When you do something, you don’t typically look ahead and think about what consequences that action is going to have in 50 or 60 years. What Basin Electric is today was beyond my wildest imagination.”

Look for more about Basin Electric’s 60 years of service to its members at the Annual Meeting in November and on the upcoming new history timeline on Basin Electric’s website.
