Today Rosebud Electric Cooperative is the tenth largest rural electric among twenty-nine rural electrics in the state. A nine member electric board of directors governs the Cooperative. It employs twenty-two people to maintain the 2,500 miles of line and serve the 5,200 metered accounts in the three county area. The cooperative serves the towns of Fairfax, Bonesteel, Herrick, Gregory, Dallas, Colome, Witten and Hamill.
Like many rural electrics, Rosebud Electric has a low density service area. The cooperative serves 2 metered accounts per mile of electric line compared the large power companies that will serve 40 accounts per mile of line.
Despite the low density, the members of the cooperative do have one of the lowest electric rates in the state and nation.
