Occasionally, members from Clay-Union Electric, Union County Electric and B-Y Electric take a bus trip to tour Basin Electric’s Antelope Valley Coal Generation Station, North American Coal Corporation, and the Dakota Gasification Great Plains Synfuels Plant – all located in North Dakota. During the tour, cooperative members also stop and tour the East River Electric Power Cooperative headquarters facilities in Madison, South Dakota. Upon the return trip, participants will visit the Capital Lake Visitor Center in Pierre and Central Electric's Solar Garden in Mitchell.
During the trip, members of the cooperative have the opportunity to learn first hand how electricity is generated and distributed to cooperatives like Clay-Union Electric.
Plan to go with us in 2021!
