Meeting member needs


Jerry King


Burke-Divide Electric Cooperative is more than just a power supplier. We also have a skilled team of licensed and insured electricians on staff to help you with your electrical projects.


A number of years ago, BDEC identified a need amongst our membership—a need for access to more licensed electricians.  Our electrician department started with one electrician and has grown to four.   Our electricians can assist members and non-members within the Cooperative’s service territory with a wide variety of services including:


  • Upgrading electrical service
  • Installing services to homes and farm shops
  • Wiring farm shops and storage buildings
  • Lighting installation and maintenance
  • Identify voltage problems
  • Grain drying systems
  • Household electrical repairs
  • Standby generator installations
  • Locate and repair underground faults
  • Private underground locating


We also stock a variety of common electrical wiring supplies including:  wire, outlets, switches and circuit breakers.


For additional information or to arrange for electrician services, contact the Cooperative’s Member Services Department at 1-800-472-2983.


Until next time,


Jerry King
