Member Bus Tour
Union County Electric offers a bus tour of its power supply system to cooperative members during the summer months. This is an event that we do every other year and includes visits to a our power supply entities. Typically, we visit wind farms, a coal-powered generating station, a solar generation facility, a visit to the country's only commercial sized gasification facility and a working coalmine. We also spend time at the South Dakota State Capital and learn the importance of remaining engaged with both State and Federal regulators.
The tour has been conducted since 1987 and is always a popular activity with cooperative members. Transportation, lodging and meal expenses are all provided by the tour with a member cost of just $30.00 per couple or $15.00 per person. It's a great chance for members to learn about and view their electrical system up close and have a good time with fellow cooperative members.
Our next tour will be held in 2021.
