Infinity REC Program

This program allows members to decide how much electricity they purchase is generated by renewable resources. Participating consumers pay an additional cost to purchase renewable energy and specifically designate how this energy is credited and used.

Distributed Energy Resources

This option is for cooperative members interested in owning renewable energy or generation system options for their homes, businesses, or farming operations. These systems are interconnected within CCEC’s system and provide the member with power from renewable energy sources.

Levelized Budget Billing

Energy Tour

Every summer, CCEC offers our members a power plant and mine tour. The tour provides an overview of power supply, a presentation and tour at the Milton R. Young Station, and a tour of the adjacent BNI coal mine. This tour is a great way to learn more about the industry and the work of providing electricity.

Advocacy and Economic Development

The purpose of a cooperative is to realize the economic, cultural, and social needs of its members and community. CCEC has a strong commitment to our communities and a focus on strengthening those in which we exist in and serve. As such, we are active participants in numerous chambers of commerce, rural and economic development organizations, and other boards and committees.


Capital Credits

At the beginning of every year, any excess revenues, or margins, from the previous year are allocated to our members and later paid out in the form of capital credits. As a member/owner, this means you benefit from any margins produced by the cooperative. Your account will accumulate capital credits each year you are an active member with us. View the insert to learn more.

Board of Directors

The members of the CCEC board of directors serve as liaisons between fellow members and the co-op executive staff, providing guidance and oversight on co-op operations. There are nine directors on the board, one representing each of the eight districts in our service territory, with district nine being an at-large position. CCEC members can run for the co-op board, and elections are held at our annual meeting.

Cooperative Structure

CCEC is an electric cooperative built by the communities we serve to deliver reliable, affordable, and sustainable energy. We are owned by our members rather than out-of-town shareholders, which means we are always looking for ways to make a difference in the communities we serve beyond delivering electricity. As a cooperative, we operate as a not-for-profit.

Cooperative Business Model

As a cooperative, we are owned by the members we serve; our board members live right here in our local area and are elected by co-op members. Because we are owned by our members, any excess revenue is shared back with our members over time. We follow the same seven cooperative principles that all cooperative businesses follow, which means we are always looking to develop new technologies and build infrastructure that benefits us all.


My Co-op Cares

One of CCEC’s core values is Commitment to Community. We would love to collaborate with your community or nonprofit projects by sending cooperative employees to work on a community project. Click the link above for more information.

Rural Development Finance Corporation (RDFC) Grant

As an RDFC member, CCEC has access to three, $1,000 grants available to eligible organizations within our service territory. Eligible projects are community-based projects that will benefit rural areas within our service territory.

Donation Program

Cass County Electric Cooperative is committed to our members, our employees, and our communities, and we strive to play an active and meaningful role in said communities. We do this through donations to local organizations in our service territory. To request a donation, click the link above.

Operation Round Up

Operation Round Up is a simple, low-cost way CCEC members can give back to the community. Members’ electric bills are rounded up to the nearest dollar, and a volunteer board meets quarterly to distribute the funds. These funds are never used for political purposes or utility bills and are used primarily within our service territory for charitable, educational, environmental, and emergency assistance purposes. Members can opt out at any time.


Electric Vehicle Charging Program

Electric vehicles (EV) represent a growing segment of both the transportation and energy industries. Publicly available EV chargers have been installed around the F-M metro area. Also, Cass County Electric Cooperative now offers members a special rate and a one-time rebate for in-home EV charging. You’ll charge your electric vehicle at home almost every day. Why not pay less every time you plug in? Contact our energy management team to learn more.

Electric Heating Program

When electric demand and market electricity prices are high, an off-peak device in the home automatically switches from an electric heat source to a backup source, such as propane or fuel oil. In exchange, participating members receive discounted off-peak electric rates. Our off-peak program is designed to reduce electric demand during peak times, saving you and the cooperative money.

Electric Water Heating Program

Next to heating and cooling your home, water heating is the largest user of energy. If you are looking for ways to save money, we may be able to help through our off-peak program. We offer a reduced rate in exchange for the ability to interrupt water heaters.

Rebate Incentives

Numerous rebates are available from CCEC for various heating, water heating, and electric vehicle equipment. Click the link above to learn more.

Time-of-Day Rate (pilot)

During “peak” hours when lots of people are using electricity, the cost for CCEC to provide power is higher. CCEC is currently working with a group of members on testing a Time-of-Day rate pilot project. Participating members receive on-peak and off-peak pricing for energy consumed during different hours of the day.



CCEC contributes $1,000 scholarships to a student at each high school within our service territory each year. Awarding these scholarships is decided by each school’s scholarship fund or the Dollars for Scholars chapter. CCEC is not involved with awarding scholarships.

University and Trade School Support

In addition to scholarships for high school students, CCEC provides one $2,000 scholarship through Bismarck State College for students enrolled in the electrical lineworker program
