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.

Maintenance efforts take flight

If there is one thing that electric cooperatives are proud of but not always known for, it’s innovation. Electric co-ops began forming in the 1930s when friends and neighbors in rural America started joining together to bring electricity to their homes and farms which major power companies were unwilling to invest in. Even then, at the very beginning, the innovative way of doing business set co-ops apart. Now, 80 years later, challenges continue to drive innovation, and innovation still drives co-ops.

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.

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.
