Basin Electric system reaches new summer member billing peak

Jen Feigitsch, Basin Electric member revenue specialist III, said final billing determinants completed for July 2022 show Basin Electric hit a new all-time-high summer billing peak of 4,320 megawatts (MW).

Feigitsch said Basin Electric’s July 2022 member peak sale level surpassed the previous all-time-high summer member sale level by 151 MW. The previous summer member billing peak was 4,169 MW, set in July 2021.

Feigitsch said the peak is primarily due to hot temperatures across the service area, incremental new sales to members in Minnesota, and new loads in western North Dakota.

Basin Electric’s all-time high peak occurred in January 2022 at 4,371 MW.
