Lending A Helping Hand

“Cooperation Among Cooperatives” is one of the cooperative principles Nodak Electric values above all else, and our team lived that principle in early May. Nodak crews headed west to Burke-Divide Electric Cooperative to assist with restoration efforts after the co-op’s service area was hit with a devastating late April storm. Ice buildup from the weather system knocked out power for not only Burke-Divide members, but also for co-ops in the surrounding area.

Crews in the west were working around the clock to fix these outages, and co-ops across the state started to step in to lend a hand. On Monday, May 2, eight Nodak lineworkers traveled to the site of the destruction to help restore power. We are grateful to have such a hardworking and dedicated crew, and we wish all of the best to our co-op neighbors.
