Member Owned, Member Focused

Being a member of Nodak Electric Cooperative, Inc., means different things to different people. For some, it means receiving reasonably priced electric energy to maintain a balanced family budget. For others, it’s experiencing reliable electric service to keep their operation running, or even having a voice in how the business is run. Whatever the reason, Nodak’s primary goal is to add value to your life in a consistent, cost-effective and safe way. Our business model puts you, the member, first and foremost in all we do. From the power generators in Center, N.D., to the electric meter in your yard, it’s all owned by the members we serve. 

Here are a few words from our members on the importance the cooperative has in their lives.

Kerry Heid 
Nodak Member-Owner

“As a member-owner of Nodak Electric Cooperative, I have a voice in the direction of our organization. I attend the annual meetings and have an opportunity to engage directly with the people who make decisions on the future of our electric service. As a long-time member, I’m even seeing my cooperative return capital credits to me on my bill. It’s a great feeling knowing that we have a people-first organization providing an essential service to our region like electricity.”  

Carissa Olsen  
President/CEO, Nokota Packers

“When harvest season begins, we are very busy at Nokota, and we rely on consistent power for our growers to be able to bring their potatoes into our bins. Nodak has been a very reliable service for us through the years. And as the cost of things keep rising all of the time, they’ve been able to maintain their rates, and we’ve appreciated that very much.”

Daniel Bernhardson  
Director of Operations,
American Crystal Sugar Company

“As a fellow cooperative, we know the value of working together toward a common goal. From the field to our production factories, Nodak is there to power every step of the way. They’ve helped us use energy more wisely and have programs in place to help us save money. We know we can pick up the phone and they’ll be here to help when we need them. That’s the value of being served by an electric cooperative.”
