Storm of the Century – 20th Anniversary

The snow is gone. The grass is starting to turn green again. Another winter has passed; another spring is beginning to give way to summer. Our harshest season was relatively mild again this year. For that, many are thankful. Twenty years ago, it was a very different story. For many, the winter and spring of 1997 do not seem like they happened two decades ago already — the memories are still fresh and probably will be for decades to come.

Farm Equipment Safety

You've planned every acre. Have you planned for your safety?

As spring planting nears, Cass County Electric Cooperative reminds hardworking farmers and ranchers to stay safe. Overhead power lines are necessary to deliver electricity, but those same power lines can also be deadly if not treated with respect. While you need to focus on the field and your machinery, your local electric cooperative urges you to also watch for electrical hazards around the farm or ranch.

CCEC 79th Annual Meeting

Cass County Electric Cooperative’s 79th Annual Meeting of the Members was held on April 18, 2017 at the Delta by Marriott in Fargo. 556 people were in attendance, including 338 registered CCEC members. Guests included representatives from other co-ops and utilities, representatives from the offices of Senator Heitkamp, Senator Hoeven, and Congressman Cramer, and former CCEC employees and board members.

Behind the Scenes at CCEC - Accounting

In the icy throes of a winter storm, Cass County Electric Cooperative linemen are the ones on the front lines. Braving slick roads and low visibility, they work for hours on end to restore power and repair damages inflicted by Mother Nature. They are the ones you’re most likely to see coming down your street when the power is out, and the ones whose progress you’re most likely to be monitoring. However, as the storm passes and the crews return, back at CCEC headquarters in Fargo, a number of employees are still hard at work.

Here To Help

FirstLink provides resources for those in need

The various services offered by FirstLink branch out like a tree. There is never a dull moment for the 10 full-time and 10 part-time employees, and there are no two days that are the same. It can be hard to describe the organization to someone unfamiliar with it, but the name FirstLink really says it all.

“Our mission is to link people with resources, 24 hours a day,” says Executive Director Cindy Miller. As simple as the mission sounds, it’s a huge undertaking.

A Way Through

Women’s Way offers support for cancer screening and treatment

The inside of Kristi Lee-Weyrauch’s office is adorned with pink. Cancer awareness ribbons line the walls and cabinets on posters, cards, and other decorations. Just by stepping inside her office, it’s clear who she is fighting for and what she is fighting against.

You’re Not Alone in the Dark

Power outages are never convenient. It takes a lot of hands to keep your power on, and even more hands to get it up and running when an outage occurs. Cass County Electric Cooperative works hard to restore your electric service when outages occur, but there are necessary steps to take to ensure that power is restored to the majority of members as quickly, and safely, as possible.
