Alger-Delta Electric Co-op Gets $7M For Improvements
Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – A project has been launched to improve electric service to businesses and residents in the central U.P.
The support comes through the USDA’s rural utilities program and will help replace aging electric lines, build new lines to reach new residents, and support smart grid projects that can help reduce electricity consumption and protect the electric grid to improve service.
Through the program, the Alger-Delta Cooperative Electric Association will receive a $7 million loan guarantee to build or improve over 100 miles of electric line and make system improvements.
The funding will also support smart grid projects and improve service for Native American communities in the area.
