Have you heard of the Cooperative Difference?


Two aspects of a cooperative make us different from other types of utilities.

At KEM Electric Cooperative members are owners in the cooperative. We exist because of you.

We were formed to bring safe, affordable and reliable energy and services to our members--it's our mission and purpose.

Our members elect 7 fellow members to represent them on the board of directors, maintaining democratic control of the cooperative.

We are local. Our headquarters in Linton, ND and outpost in Steele, ND serve approximately 2,183 members / 5125 meters in Kidder, Emmons, McIntosh, Logan, and Burleigh counties.

We maintain 3,020 miles of line, with 595 of those miles being underground.
