Wind and other alternative energy sources will be VEC focus at annual meeting
Ron Harper, CEO and General Manager at Basin Electric Power Cooperative, will be the keynote speaker at the Verendrye Electric Cooperative (VEC) annual meeting Thursday, June 11, at the North Dakota State Fair Center.
Centered around the theme, “Turning Visions into Realities,” this year’s annual meeting highlights Verendrye’s role in the nation’s first cooperative-owned wind farm. The $250-million project is located in VEC territory south of Minot. The wind farm is among several wind-related projects Basin Electric is developing. Harper will give updates on Basin’s responses to today’s energy challenges.
