Basin Electric system reaches new all-time system billing peak

Becky Kern, Basin Electric director of long-term utility planning, said final billing determinants completed for February 2021 show Basin Electric hit a new all-time high system billing peak of 4,242 megawatts (MW).

Kern said Basin Electric’s February 2021 member peak sale level surpassed the previous all-time high system member sale level by about 182 MW. The previous all-time high peak was 4,060 MW, set in January 2019.

Kern said the peak is attributable to the widespread cold temperatures that occurred in mid-February.
