About Us

Welcome to our website!  We are hopeful that it gives you all the information you need on your electric service and your cooperative. It has been updated to be an extension of our office and we hope you find many of the new features helpful.

Established in 1940, Beltrami Electric Cooperative is a member-owned electric distribution cooperative located in Bemidji, Minn.  Beltrami Electric provides power to over 17,600 member-owners within a 3,000 square mile service area located in the beautiful lakes region of north-central Minnesota. We serve parts of Beltrami, Cass, Clearwater, Hubbard, Itasca and Koochiching Counties.  We encourage members to take an active interest in the cooperative business. The cooperative is guided by a board of nine directors elected by the membership.

Beltrami Electric employees who are dedicated to the safe, reliable delivery of low-cost energy and quality service to you our members.  Because we are owned by those we serve, providing  excellent member service is especially important to us.
