Curious about where your energy comes from? Park Electric Cooperative purchases power from Central Montana Electric Power Cooperative (CMEPC). CMEPC has contracts with Basin Electric Power Cooperative (Basin) and Western Area Power Administration (WAPA). 65% of the energy we get from CMEPC is non-carbon emitting hydro electric power from the dams along the Missouri river which is delivered by WAPA (The Park Electric pie chart below) The remaining 35% of the power we receive from CMEPC comes from Basin (the Basin mix pie chart below). Their energy portfolio is more diverse. Basin has been working progressively over the past several years to diversify its power portfolio and incorporate more renewables.
