May 2017 Highline Notes 1


by Marshal Albright, President/CEO

This month, I’d like to take a moment to reflect on the importance of safety. May is Electrical Safety Month, and Cass County Electric Cooperative (CCEC) will be sharing safety tips and reminders throughout the month to help raise awareness about the dangers of electricity. For more information on electrical safety visit our website at or see us on Facebook. We all depend on electricity to power our lives, but accidents can happen when electricity is improperly used. Our responsibility to you CCEC’s concern for safety extends

beyond our employees. We care deeply about the safety of our members, and this month, we encourage you to plug into safety. According to the Electrical Safety Foundation International, thousands of people in the U.S. are critically injured and electrocuted as a result of electrical fires, accidents, and electrocution in their homes. To promote safety education in our local communities, our safety team participated in 14 events in 2016. We visited some area high schools at career fairs and community events in Ransom and Cass Counties. We frequently provide electrical safety content in our newsletters and on social media, and we encourage the public to contact us if they see a downed power line or any other type of dangerous electrical situation. We strive to provide our communities with safe, reliable and affordable electricity and to serve as your trusted energy advisor, now and well into the future. Our responsibility to employees It is no accident that safety is a top priority at CCEC. We are committed to a culture of safety that is integral to our daily operations. In fact, CCEC

is part of the Rural Electric Safety Achievement Program (RESAP) that follows specific guidelines and protocols for electrical safety that are considered leading practices. In 2016 our committed workforce had zero OSHA recordable injuries and had worked more than 1,000,000 hours since our last lost time injury. Our line workers are required to wear personal protective equipment at all times when on the job. This includes special arc rated clothing that will self-extinguish, limiting potential injuries from burns and sparks. Insulated rubber gloves and sleeves are worn in tandem to protect from electrical shock. Our safety committee regularly discusses important safety issues about work within the building as well as out in the field. Our safety slogan is “Safety First, Last, Always.” As the CEO of CCEC, I believe it is my duty and responsibility to raise awareness about the importance of electrical safety. Take a moment to plug into safety. Please visit our website at or see us on Facebook for electrical safety tips.

CCEC will be closed on Monday, May 29 for Memorial Day. 2 Highline Notes May 2017

May 2017 Highline Notes 3


20th Anniversary

The snow is gone. The grass is starting to turn green again. Another winter has passed; another spring is beginning to give way to summer. Our harshest season was relatively mild again this year. For that, many are thankful. Twenty years ago, it was a very different story. For many, the winter and spring of 1997 do not seem like they happened two decades ago already — the memories are still fresh and probably will be for decades to come. A thick collection of documents, photographs, and videos at Cass County Electric Cooperative from the spring of 1997 serves as a reminder for those who were living and working in the area at the time and serves as a glance back to a trying time for those who were not. “I still get a little emotional going through it,” says Dee DeGeest, engineering technician for CCEC. DeGeest and several other CCEC employees still with the company played a vital role in putting the pieces back together after the worst storm situation in the cooperative’s history. Included in the collection of documents from that spring is a journal DeGeest kept during the height of the mess. She made brief notes each night before getting three or four hours of sleep. During this stretch, she was away from

4 Highline Notes May 2017

home for 17 days, and stories like hers are common amongst locals who were around back then.

A winter that dumped more than 100 inches of snow on the Red River Valley delivered one final blow on April 5, 1997. A steady rain turned to ice as temperatures dropped back below freezing. Winds picked up and became violent. As residents hunkered down, CCEC employees were filled with dread as they looked outside. At the office, the phones starting ringing as power outages began piling up. For thousands in the Valley, a disaster was just beginning. For CCEC, the damage from a brutal winter capped off by the violent storm was extensive. Ice several inches thick coated power lines and equipment. Ensuing high winds resulted in 2,000 power poles snapped like twigs, often for mileslong stretches. As the storm passed, 6,500 CCEC members were without power. Worse yet, large transmission structures were left crumpled, and 13 CCEC substations were completely powerless. Restoration work began before the storm even ended, but efforts were stymied by nature’s persistence. Crews stubborn enough to brave the conditions would re-secure damaged lines, only to watch them be blown back down minutes later.

They would have to wait before making real progress. An intensive restoration campaign was launched in the days following the storm. Crews faced ice, mud, and washed-out roads with flood waters six feet deep in some locations. Employees worked exhaustively, putting in 14-hour days while scrambling to protect their own homes from rising waters. After nearly two full weeks of work, power was restored to the last remaining members on the evening of April 17. They had been without power for 11 days. Repairs and clean up would become a major part of CCEC’s work for the remainder of the year. Through miserable conditions and sodden destruction, the spirit of the community, even the greater region, made an unforgettable impact. Within a week of the storm striking, 150 outside employees from seven states had come to help CCEC’s restoration efforts. Stories still abound of rural members using tractors to pull co-op vehicles through roads turned to stew, volunteering motorboats to help reach poles suddenly in the middle of lakes, and delivering coffee, food, and encouragement to exhausted crews. When the Storm of the Century tore everything apart, the residents of the Valley came together.

Steady rain and rapidly falling temperatures coated the landscape in ice. Power lines, heavy with the weight, were blown down by high winds.

An 11-mile stretch of poles and lines just west of Argusville was demolished by the storm. Crews were forced to set temporary poles alongside the road to restore power until conditions improved.

These 345kV transmission structures near Mapleton were shredded, as were many others. As the storm subsided, downed transmission lines had left 13 CCEC substations powerless.

A crew from Cedar Knox PPD, out of Hartington, Nebraska, was part of the 150man envoy that came to the aid of CCEC following the storm. Along Highway 27 near Lisbon, farmers coming to the rescue of stuck trucks became a common sight.

Renewable Energy Credits Sold Here! You might have recently received a flyer or some other form of communication from Arcadia Power or other entities offering to sell wind energy certificates in conjunction with the use of electricity at your home or business.

Arcadia Power is one of a few national renewable energy certificate (REC) providers. Arcadia Power is a third-party wind certificate retailer based out of Washington, D.C., and it is not affiliated with Cass County Electric Cooperative. Since 2002, CCEC has been offering the Infinity Wind Energy Program that allows you to buy locally produced wind energy RECs, also called green tags, for .3 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh). It appears to us that Arcadia is offering the same subscription for as high as 1.5 cents per kWh. For a fifth of the cost, you can receive wind credits from CCEC rather than pay an out-of-state third party such as Arcadia. The Infinity Wind Energy Program was developed to provide the means for members to purchase RECs from local wind farms. The RECs are certified and registered through Midwest Renewable Energy Tracking System, or M-RETS. Once sold, the renewable wind RECs are retired, which means they cannot be used or claimed again. Minnkota Power, the power supplier for CCEC, was among the early developers of wind energy, constructing the first commercial-scale turbines in the state of North Dakota – two 900-kW wind turbines near Petersburg and Valley City in 2002. From 2007 to 2009 Minnkota added 357 megawatts of wind capacity in eastern North Dakota through long-term Power Purchase Agreements with NextEra Energy Resources. The electricity generated for these turbines flows into the Minnkota/Northern Municipal Power Agency transmission system and is delivered, along with other sources of electricity, to your meter through CCEC’s distribution lines.

6 Highline Notes May 2017

It is also important for you as a member of CCEC to remember that you already receive a minimum of 10 percent of your monthly electric energy needs from wind energy to meet the North Dakota Renewable Energy Objective. Nevertheless, should you wish to ensure that an even greater portion of your energy needs are derived from wind energy, we can certainly accommodate you.

A retirement well-earned It was 1964. Lyndon B. Johnson was president of the United States, The Beatles were invading American airwaves, and military tensions were mounting in East Asia. While events around the globe were making a mark on history, a young man was just beginning a career at a rural electric cooperative in southeastern North Dakota. He had no idea what was in store for him, nor of the hundreds of lives he would impact. Fifty-three years later, Darrell Norquist prepares for one last work assignment: to eat as much pizza as he can. His retirement party is a few days away, and his favorite pizza place in town, Duane’s, will be providing lunch. He is ready to rest after so many years of hard work. He is apt to tell a few more stories

before he goes though, for he has no shortage of them. “I could write a book,” he says. Norquist worked as an apprentice and journeyman lineman before becoming a line foreman. He later took the role of apparatus service worker, where he performed meter readings and other services in the field. Though he has enjoyed each of his roles, Norquist says he liked being line foreman best. “I liked being the boss. I had a crew of ten – five of them liked me and five of them didn’t,” he recalls with a smile. Throughout his time with CCEC, Norquist says the best part of his job has always been meeting the members and getting to chat with them. He met many people in CCEC’s rural areas and remembers many of them well. One experience sticks out in his mind. A farmer near Wimbledon had been running into trouble with power outages due to a high electric load needed for grain drying. Due to his location, it tended to take a long time for power to be restored to the farmer. Norquist recalls visiting the man after one such outage. The two had a heated exchange and only narrowly avoided a physical altercation. Days later, the two men ran into each other in public. They had each cooled off and put the confrontation behind them. They got to talking, more amicably this time. Before long their chats became regular, and a friendship developed. “We’re still good friends to this day,” says Norquist.

Darrell Norquist in the Valley City service center.

A career spanning five decades is not an easy thing to achieve, but Norquist says he was always able to

enjoy his job enough to stick around. “It was fun. That’s what kept me here. Good people, good employees.” Norquist’s dedication to his career is an inspiration to a younger generation of employees. He has passed much of his knowledge down to them. Many of the lessons he shares extend beyond career advice and speak to an outlook on life itself. “Don’t get discouraged. You’re going to have ups and downs. You’ll have days where you will get mad and want to quit, but you have to step back and let it pass.”

Choose a work that you love and you won’t have to work another day. -Confucious He truly speaks from experience. Cass County Electric Cooperative extends the highest gratitude to Norquist for his 53 years of service and dedication. We thank him for the countless members and employees, past and present, who he has impacted. We wish him all the best in his well-earned retirement. In addition to Norquist, three other longtime CCEC employees have recently retired or announced their retirement. The four employees combined will take nearly 200 years of work experience with them when they leave. Mark Wick, Vicki Hamry, and Bobby Koepplin have recently or will soon join Norquist in retirement. We thank them all and wish them many years of enjoyment and relaxation. May 2017 Highline Notes 7

Addressing addiction

Local leaders come together to combat opioid crisis in F-M area At Cass County Electric Cooperative, we do our part to power our communities literally, by providing safe and reliable electricity. However, contributing to a strong and thriving community goes beyond the service we provide. We contribute to local nonprofits, volunteer our time, and strive to spread awareness. When a community suffers, it affects everyone.

The dark struggle with substance abuse and addiction is making a real impact in North Dakota, as deaths related to drug overdose tragically began populating headlines in the last couple of years. Behind the headlines and news articles are families battling to help their loved ones before they must mourn them, as well as those who battled and lost. With a growing problem comes a changing mindset. At a recent CCEC employee event, Darrin Tonsfeldt, division director of behavioral health and financial services with The Village Family Service Center, spoke about how it is time to realize that addiction must be handled in new ways.

“One of the things I talk about when I get on the topic of addiction is ‘judge not, lest ye be judged,’” said Tonsfeldt.

In September of 2016, the mayors of Moorhead, Fargo, West Fargo, Dilworth, and Horace came together to form the Mayors’ Blue Ribbon Council on Addiction. Together, with close partnership with affiliated agencies, ranging from treatment centers to the police force, the commission is working on a paradigm shift. Effort is being made to reduce the stigma associated with substance abuse and to let those affected by it know that help is available. Tonsfeldt represents The Village on the commission. “The Mayors’ Blue Ribbon Commission is not about judging,” he said. “We’re about finding solutions to the affliction of the disease of addiction.” Part of working toward a solution includes building awareness. Tonsfeldt said being sensitive to behavioral changes in co-workers

or loved ones is crucial to spotting individuals who may need help. Changes in productivity, quality of work, or an increase in absenteeism in the workplace could be signs of trouble. In general, a notable decline in how someone takes care of themselves can be an indication of abuse or addiction problems. Though stress, depression, and anxiety may play roles in changing behaviors as well, Tonsfeldt noted that it is important to be open to finding or encouraging others to seek help. “We ask folks not to deny the possibility that this is happening right around you.” The Village Family Service Center is a hub of resources to improve the quality of life for individuals, families, and organizations in the region. They offer services related to adoption, mental health, financial health, family counseling, and more. To learn more, visit

SUPERVISORY CONTROL AND DATA ACQUISITION (SCADA) Much like the dashboard of your car, Cass County Electric Cooperative’s supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system is an important source of information. While your car’s dash informs you about your speed, fuel level, engine diagnostics, and more, an electric co-op’s SCADA system is keeping engineers and technicians in the loop about the local electric grid. Hardware installed at substations serves to ensure that power leaving the substation meets power quality standards. Sensors collect data, remote terminal units (RTUs)

monitor the sensors and transmit the data on the SCADA network, actuators perform actions based on data and system commands, and communications gear feeds everything back to CCEC. Engineers and technicians use software to interpret data from the field. The system measures a variety of characteristics. For instance, if voltage from a transformer goes too far out of its range, creating a potentially dangerous situation, adjustments may be automatically made. In addition, CCEC technicians receive a notification about what

happened. In certain circumstances, technicians may intervene when an alarm is received and make manual adjustments from the control center. SCADA alarms can provide insight into failing equipment, giving CCEC a heads up when something might need to be replaced, which can help to reduce outages and outage response time. Data is supplied at near real-time, allowing CCEC to keep a virtual eye on the system at all times. SCADA has become an invaluable tool for ensuring the safe, reliable operation of the electric grid.

Tony Tasa oversees the SCADA systems of CCEC.
