HAZEN, N.D. - Two western North Dakota electric cooperatives have overwhelmingly approved a consolidation.

Hazen-based Oliver-Mercer Electric and Dickinson-based West Plains Electric will be known as the Roughrider Electric Cooperative once the transition is made, likely early next year.

The two co-ops have about 6,200 members. Officials say about 40 percent of them voted.

The vote for both co-ops was more than three-fourths in favor of the consolidation.

The service territory includes Billings, Dunn, Stark, Mercer and Oliver counties.
