the Power oF membershiP

As a member of Cass County Electric

Cooperative, you are also an owner. As a

Touchstone Energy Cooperative, we strive to provide dependable electricity at a competitive cost to every member. But as a member, you have the power: the power to have a voice in how the co-op is run; the power to energize and enhance your life with affordable electricity; and to save money through responsible energy use and giving back to our local communities through

Operation Round-up. The power is all yours.

It’s up to you to turn it on.

Being a member-owner of CCEC, you can feel confident that decisions are made in the best interest of your community. These decisions are made by a local board of directors, who are members just like you, which you elect.

Most employees are members as well.

and expected to be on ALL the time. Now, more than ever, we depend on electricity every minute of the day. Through innovation and new technology, CCEC is doing everything we can to keep electricity reliable and affordable.

Power oF value

Affordable electricity. While so many things we buy have climbed steadily over the years, electricity is still one of the best values out there. That is comforting to know, because electricity is essential to energizing our lives and keeping us connected more than ever.

As mentioned, electricity has doubled in price since 1937. The cost to purchase goods and services has no doubt increased over time.

The following list shows how prices have changed:

Last year we celebrated our 75th Anniversary and since inception your cooperative has grown to over 38,300 members. Last year we sold more than 1,000,000,000 kWh of electricity to power your community from energy generated right here in North Dakota.

In the early years of the cooperative, the price for electricity was around 5 cents per kilowatt hour. Today the average cost is around 10 cents per kilowatt hour, about double the cost from 1937.

Power oF electricity

The electricity CCEC provides is essential for everyday life and is often taken for granted

1937 Today Increase

Coffee $.15/lb $7.43/lb 49x

Eggs $.27/doz $1.97/doz 7x

Bacon $.38/lb $4.51/lb 12x gas $.10/gal $3.65/gal 36x

Car $665 $25,015 38x

Electricity $.05/kwh $.10/kwh 2x

Power oF using energy wisely

When we work together, using energy wisely and saving money go hand in hand. With helpful energy efficient tools and resources from CCEC, doing both is easier than you think. Start by visiting kwh.com and clicking on the “Together We Save” link and then take a room-by-room walkthrough with the Virtual

Home Tour and learn how simple responsible energy use practices can add up to big savings. We also have energy experts on staff to assist you with questions about electricity use.

Power oF connections

One of the benefits of being a member-owner of CCEC is that your membership means more than just affordable electricity. With the

Co-op Connections® Card, it also can add savings at hundreds of participating local and national retailers. Visit www.kwh.com for more information. It’s just another way we’re looking out for our member-owners.

To show our appreciation for our memberowners we are holding a member appreciation event at the Red River Zoo on August 18 from

3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Admission is FREE, so come join your friends and neighbors for a day at the zoo.

remember…the power is yours. it’s up to you to turn it on!


local rural community pulls together to save theater

The group has received funds from Operation

Round Up. The donated funds enabled some work to be done when remodeling the lobby. The flooring needed to be replaced and the ceiling repaired. The group also painted the walls and added new carpet.

If the parking in the middle of the street doesn’t grab your attention when cruising down the main drag of Page, ND, something else might. The wellkept, quaint town still has an open movie theater.

While surrounding areas have lost their theaters to


digital conversions and other changes, Page has worked hard and come together as a community using a reel system.

“About three years ago we had a cantankerous system set up and when Fargo went to digital we took some of their old stuff. Late last fall, we to save a place that serves not only as a source switching to digital. Until recently, they’ve still been found that we must completely switch to digital,” of entertainment, but also a meaningful project that

movies just as fast as Fargo. years ago, the theater was owned by a private party who ended up turning it over to the Jaycees and Jaycee Women. During this time, the Jaycees and Jaycee Women replaced the seats with the

Valley City theater seats when that theater was remodeled. Eventually, the theater was turned over to the Page Community Club, which is part of the

Page Betterment Corp.

When faced with having to close completely due to the required conversion, the community had to make a choice. At a meeting, someone suggested just

“putting it out there” and trying to raise the money to keep the theater open. It was no small task. The

Community Club had to raise $60,000. Though the price tag seemed hefty for a small town, they pulled

“Several years ago we painted, put in curtains, replaced the floor. Now we are going to get a new screen to fit with the new projector,” said Nancy

“we try to keep it community friendly,” said satrom.

The theater is open on Saturdays and Sundays, with a 7:30 p.m. showing each night. During each evening the theater draws a ticket for a free movie pass. The theater is open from April through the beginning of

September. It opens during special events throughout the year, such as for movies at Christmas or

together and it became a reality. Fundraising began in December last year and by March, the money had been raised.

“It’s another way to keep us vital. We’re a happening bunch. About 15 years ago we were losing our café because the building wasn’t viable anymore. We went on faith and decided to go for it to replace it. It’s still going strong and it’s the center of the community.

The theater complements it,” said Satrom of her town and community.

About Operation Round Up

Operation Round Up (ORU) is a program facilitated by CCEC. Participating members round up their electric bills to the next highest dollar. These “cents”

(2012 average monthly contribution was 49 cents) are pooled into the ORU program. Only 49 cents per month! That’s less than the price of a cup of coffee or can of pop. Through the ORU program, members can help their neighbors who are in need and nonprofit organizations within the CCEC service area with financial assistance for crucial needs such as food, shelter, health care, emergency services, and more. With all of us working together, each 49 cents per month becomes a significant contribution with potential to make an overwhelming difference for those less fortunate in our CCEC community.

She said that people come from Ayr, Hope, Arthur and other surrounding communities to use the theater, adding that many of the movies are geared towards family and kids.

Operation Round Up is seeking a board member for district 4. If interested, please contact Linda Otterson at 701.356.4401.



boy does good for north dakota , for earth

Although Chad Ulven can’t cite a defining moment that brought him to where he is today, it’s easy to see that the rural North Dakota native’s roots and passion for his state are a driving force behind all he’s accomplished.

Ulven is young, a mere 34, and already established as an associate professor at NDSU in the mechanical engineering department, and now chief technical officer for his startup company, c2renew.

Currently, c2renew is based at the NDSU Technology Incubator, but it is the dream of Ulven, and his business partner Corey kratcha, that the company be based in the rural area he knows so well, such as the Colfax area where he grew up. The company also employs one of Chad’s former graduate students, Mike Ehresmann, who fills the role of operations manager/lead engineer.

“The vision from the start was that this would be a North

Dakota based company, utilizing residuals from agricultural products to create value for farmers and

Ag processors as well as to create high-tech jobs for engineering students so they can stay in the state if they want to and still do some cutting-edge work when they graduate,” said Ulven.

6 Highline Notes June/July 2013 www.kwh.com


The company takes agricultural biomass, treats it and compounds it into thermoplastics to make what Ulven calls a biocomposite.

Through one of the facets of the technology, they thermally modify the biomass so that it can be introduced into higher temperature thermoplastics such as nylon and polystyrene, and to do that they use torrefaction. The torrefaction process is often used for energy production because one can capture the synthetic gas that’s produced during the biomass roasting process, and use it as fuel for combustion and gasification applications. c2renew would ultimately like a facility that would be relatively independent, producing its own energy for the plant, and they’d like to be located rurally. c2renew works with plastic molders to make products from the biocomposites they produce. Their strategy is to hybridize several biomasses to maintain a certain cellulose content, lignin content, hemicellulose content, residual fats and proteins content, so it becomes a mixture that maintains certain constituent levels.

Products made by C2Renew.

“The plastic that we mainly work with is petroleum based, but the fillers are from renewable resources. We work with sunflower hull, sugar beet pulp, distiller dry grains with soluble, oat hull, flax shive, etc. you name it, and we’ve probably tried it and the idea behind hybridization of the biomasses is that we’re never dependent on one particular biomass,” explained


The company has been working on handles for John Deere on

Chad Ulven, Cory Cratcha and Mike Ehresmann, make up c2renew their X500 series lawn tractor. c2renew is also currently working with Bobcat on a belt guard that goes in the engine compartment and developing a product for Toshiba.

That’s when he met Corey and was convinced to give it a shot and turn it into a business.

“With Toshiba, we are looking at their ink jet/ toner cartridges. What’s interesting is that

Toshiba mandates 25% of the material needs to come from a recycled or renewable resource.

Right now, they’re fulfilling that by using postconsumer recycled plastic, but the availability is very cyclic, and they have to ensure it is nontoxic by testing which is an added expense. We

“We went though and structured a licensing agreement with NDSU to allow us to use the technology for commercial business and that was completed in March of 2012. Since then we’ve been structuring the business and bringing on strategic investors,” said Ulven.

Ulven’s goal is to maintain his faculty position and continue to educate students and do cutting-edge research in this area and mature new technologies to the point of commercialization. came in and said that we can help you meet that need and provide you very steady and predictable pricing,” said Ulven.

The company is also working with a couple companies to develop new products. Ulven explained that they’re not just a materials developer and supplier but also have an engineering services arm.

“That’s why I like being involved in the university as well as this company because

I can act as a conduit for some of the technology, that not only I create, but that some of my colleagues create on campus that just either don’t have the interest in getting involved in a business or maybe don’t have the background in how to do it. I can act

“We will help a company that might not have the engineering bandwidth to develop a product as well as the material and then supply the material to them at the end of the day,” he explained.

as the channel to make it happen if they’re interested. That’s what excites me and that’s what is fun about this as well as generating jobs for students who want to stay in the area to work on more high-end technology based on agriculture, which obviously is the driver for our state,” explained Ulven.

In his first six years as a faculty member at NDSU, Ulven had over a dozen graduate students doing research on this technology.

Part of the research got to the point that it was mature enough to be commercialized and Ulven decided he didn’t want to license the technology to just anyone. He wanted to continue to be able to have an impact on it.

As far as c2renew goes, it’s just getting its start. Ideally, Ulven and his partner would like to see the company staffed with several engineers and manufacturing personnel and continue on, right here in North Dakota.

in memory

Al Eul

1956 – 2013

Al was a cable locater for Cass County Electric for 15 years. He was known for his keen ability to locate underground plant where others struggled. During the winter months Al worked in CCEC’s fleet shop where his excellent mechanical and shop skills helped carry the heavy seasonal work load, repairing equipment for the next construction season. Al was also a very talented craftsman in the shop, making things for the shop that sets it apart as a mechanic’s dream.

Al’s love in life was the outdoors and outdoor sports. He loved to hunt and fish and spent many weekends in the field and on the lakes with family and friends. He relished spending time with his father and the many hunts they shared, and was especially fond of his hunting dogs

Honey and later Harley. As an avid outdoorsman, he was also known for his marksmanship and his enjoyment and skill in trapshooting.

Always known for his quiet, pleasant demeanor and hard work ethic, Al was a very loyal and dedicated employee.

He died very unexpectedly in his home as he was preparing to come to work. He will be greatly missed by his family, many friends, and co-workers. May he rest in peace.

Property tax fairness bill passed

SB 2325 to provide property tax fairness for our rural electric cooperatives was approved by the

House just before noon on the final day of the legislative session. This action came after the conference committee on SB 2325 voted to amend the bill to reduce the $1/megawatt hour tax on retail sales by 20 percent to $.80/megawatt hour. The Senate voted to pass the bill 46-0, and the House passed the bill by a vote of 92-0.

Based on current and projected sales, this tax decrease will save our co-ops more than $3 million over the next two years. Harlan Fuglesten, legal counsel for North Dakota Association of Rural Electric Cooperatives, is still analyzing the final impact the Legislature’s actions this session will have on bringing the Invester Owned Utilities and Rural Electric

Cooperatives closer together in terms of property tax fairness.
