Power Plant Tours
Northern Plains Electric is offering its assistance to local school districts in scheduling tours of the Antelope Valley coal-generating plant, the Coteau Freedom coal mine and the Great Plains coal gasification plant. All three plants are in the same complex near Beulah.
This field trip is an interesting and educational supplement to science courses and will educate students on the fascinating electric generation and coal industry in North Dakota.
As a part of the tour, our power supplier, Basin Electric Power Cooperative of Bismarck, will provide a noon meal. Northern Plains Electric Cooperative will donate $200 to your school for gas or food expenses, to be used at the school’s discretion.
