Electricity Improvement Slated for Rural Communities

$1 billion in electrical loans have been set aside for rural communities. 60,000 rural customers will have improved electricity quality.
Agricultural Secretary Tom Vilsack announced that 37 rural utilities and cooperatives in 29 states will receive funding from $1 billion that has been set aside. The loans will be used to build and repair over 10,000 miles of distribution and transmission lines.
“President Obama is delivering on his commitment to invest in rural American’s infrastructure by funding upgrades to rural utilities and cooperatives,” Vilsack said in a press release. “rural communities need affordable up-to-date electric service in order to broaden economic opportunities. These loans will enable cooperatives to deliver improved service to more customers.”
The loans will help provide more reliable electrical sources to the rural communities. 402 rural electrical cooperatives use USDA Rural Development Energy Resources Conservation programs and need to improve their quality.
