Educational Opportunities

Members can take advantage of several opportunities to learn more about the industry.

Two-Day Power Plant Tour
Find out where your power comes from. The Center Tour, sponsored by Wild Rice Electric, gives members and spouses a chance to experience and learn about the generation of electricity in an educational tour. The tour does include a cost per person, which covers lodging and meals. Tour stops include a visit to the Milton R. Young Generating Plant near Center, N.D., along with other educational and informative stops. The Center Tour is normally held in June with the dates and sign-up information published usually in the April and May issues of the cooperative's Rural DeLight newsletter. Contact us for more information and availability.
National Rural Electric Youth Tour
Over the years, Wild Rice Electric has proudly sponsored qualifying high school juniors or seniors to represent its service territory as a youth delegate at the National Rural Electric Youth Tour located in Washington, D.C. These youth delegates have represented the cooperative, visited with their congressional representatives, toured some of the most famous museums in the world and made memories and friends that will last a lifetime.
Presentations / Speakers
Speakers are available for presentations on a variety of industry topics and will provide electrical safety demonstrations to civic organizations, schools, etc. upon request.
