The basin electric power cooperative is a non-profit organization based in the San Francisco Bay Area. We are a membership-based organization with over 20,000 members in 11 states and Canada. We cover all aspects of electric power cooperatives including electric power distribution, retail markets, electric power production and distribution, local control and pricing, and transmission and distribution. Our focus is in the wholesale electric power market as we are an advocate for a high quality, efficient and affordable power system.
In general, we are a very small and focused organization, so it is hard to get a lot of information about what we do or how we do it.
We do not specialize in electric power cooperatives; we are only interested in the wholesale electric power market. We have a number of smaller cooperatives across Canada and states in the US. We also act as a clearinghouse for information and a directory of electric cooperatives in the United States.
In general, we are not an electric power cooperative, but we do own or have owned power cooperatives. Like a number of other electric power cooperatives, we are a not-for-profit that provides electricity to businesses and home owners. We are not a broker, nor do we own or buy electricity from any other electric power cooperative. While we own power cooperatives, we do not participate in the wholesale market and do not buy electricity on behalf of any other electric power cooperative.
We own or have owned power cooperatives in North Carolina, Arkansas, and California, all of which operate electricity grids. We also own or have owned electric power cooperatives in Alabama, Virginia, and Texas. In all of these states we sell electricity to private residential and commercial customers. Our board of directors is made up of members who have a direct interest in the operation of our power cooperatives.
In the current energy crisis, the price for electricity is high and falling. If we can’t sell electricity to private residential and commercial customers, we can’t make a profit. This is a big problem for power cooperatives. Power cooperatives need to keep their operating costs low, especially when they’re competing with other power cooperatives.
The Basin Electric Power Cooperative is a cooperative that is a member of the Basin Electric Power Cooperative (BEPC) and is one of the only cooperatives in the state of Florida to serve residential and commercial customers. We need to keep people from going off grid, into the dark, to get their power, and we need to keep people from going for power in the middle of the night when the power cooperatives need to be operating.
But what if the power cooperatives were to decide to charge you for your power when you went off-grid? Well, the Basin Electric Power Cooperative doesn’t have a monopoly on power rates, but there’s no way in the world to beat the market by charging you for your power. The only way to get your power at 100% is to go off grid with Basin Electric Power Cooperative.
If you’re one of the 1.5 million people in the Basin Electric Power Cooperative (BePCo), you can get your power at a rate of $6 per kW. This is lower than the rate of $9 you’d get if you’re on the grid, but you’ll pay $1.50 per kW for the privilege.
The bePCo does have a monopoly on the cost of electricity. The rate of your power is the same as the rate of other bePCo customers. If you want to go on the bePCo, you can pay 6.25 per kW for your power. This is lower than the rate of 9 youd get on the grid, but youll pay 1.50 per kW for the privilege.
