Fargo

An Entrepreneurial Ecosystem

While our region is experiencing stunning growth, this certainly hasn’t always been the case. In the 1990s and early 2000s, this area was in the midst of a “brain drain,” the term used to describe the trend of students leaving after graduation. Since those times, things have turned around, but why?

Investing in Reliability

As an area develops and grows, the skyline changes. In south Fargo and West Fargo, a flurry of expansion has left things looking much different than they did 10 years ago. While the most notable change to the horizon in this area is the recently completed Sanford hospital along Interstate 94, another large project meant to support the area’s overall growth is resulting in a few changes as well.

Addressing Addiction

Local leaders come together to combat opioid crisis in F-M area

At Cass County Electric Cooperative, we do our part to power our communities literally, by providing safe and reliable electricity. However, contributing to a strong and thriving community goes beyond the service we provide. We contribute to local nonprofits, volunteer our time, and strive to spread awareness. When a community suffers, it affects everyone.

A Retirement Well-Earned

It was 1964. Lyndon B. Johnson was president of the United States, The Beatles were invading American airwaves, and military tensions were mounting in East Asia. While events around the globe were making a mark on history, a young man was just beginning a career at a rural electric cooperative in southeastern North Dakota. He had no idea what was in store for him, nor of the hundreds of lives he would impact.

2016 Member Meetings

October is National Cooperative Month when the 32,000 cooperatives across the  country take time to celebrate the principles and benefits of being a co-op member. In celebrating our values of safety, integrity, innovation, accountability, and commitment to community, Cass County Electric Cooperative invites members to attend our fall meetings around our service territory. This year we're holding meetings in two locations: Fargo and Valley City.
