Our history starts in the Black Hills, supplying electricity to Deadwood when it was a rough-and-tumble gold mining town, back in the days of Calamity Jane and Wild Bill Hickok. We've been in business more than 135 years and are based in Rapid City, South Dakota. We have over 2900 employees across eight states (South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, and Arkansas).
At Black Hills Energy, we strive to create a workplace where similarities, differences, and complexities are valued. By harnessing the power of diversity and inclusion, we’re able to create a workplace where each employee can personally thrive while contributing to better business outcomes. When we engage employees and listen to unique perspectives, we all benefit.
Employee resource groups (ERGs) are a vital part of our culture. They create community for underrepresented groups, foster belonging, and help us stay focused on how to best support employees across our company. We are proud of our women’s resource group, Aspire and our veteran and military resource group, VET and appreciate and value all of the great work they are doing in our company.
