MARYVILLE, MO (2009-06-09) It's a multi-million dollar wind fall for wind energy in our region- and for electric cooperative power in North Missouri.
The US Department of Agriculture is sending
2 hundred million dollars as a loan to Associated Electric Cooperative, which is a partner in the Wind Farms built in Northwest Missouri.
The money will be used by Associated Electric to develop environmental system improvements for its customers here and in Iowa and Oklahoma.
And United Electric based in Savannah Missouri will get nearly 19 million dollars in Federal loans.
United will use that to build more than 130 miles of new distribution lines in Andrew, Atchison, Buchanan, Clinton, Daviess, Dekalb (de kab), Gentry, Harrison, Holt, Nodaway, and Worth counties.
United Electric will also improve existing electric lines in those areas using the loan money.
