Basin Electric’s 2021 annual report available soon

2021 Basin Electric annual report

The 2021 Basin Electric annual report has been sent to the printer and will be available online soon. The report focuses on the value Basin Electric’s membership brings to rural America through serving reliable, affordable, and environmentally responsible power. Member features throughout the report demonstrate the services electric cooperatives bring to sectors of load Basin Electric serves, including residential, industrial, and agricultural.

According to Tracie Bettenhausen, Basin Electric senior staff writer/editor and annual report editor, the report presents a review of 2021 business and financial activities including the cooperative’s strong availability in both generation and transmission, commitment to a diverse generation portfolio, and the importance of how Basin Electric’s strong financials and widespread operational facilities help carry the cooperative through the February 2021 energy emergency. The report also outlines the cooperative’s ability to adapt to and navigate an increasingly complex world in which the pace of technological change is quickening and volatility is increasing.

Bettenhausen said employees across the cooperative contribute to the publication. The report was designed by Janene Pudwill, multimedia specialist III/senior graphic designer. Employees contributing photography to the report were Greg Wheeler, multimedia specialist III/senior audio/visual producer and Joy Schnabel, member relations assistant.

The report will be sent to member-system directors and managers, representatives of financial entities, and congressional delegates in Basin Electric's nine-state service area. It will also be provided to employees and affiliated organizations, such as statewide rural electric associations and the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association.

The report will also be available for download on Basin Electric's website.
