KEC applied for special grant funding from FEMA to convert approximately 22 miles of the most problematic overhead lines in the Spirit Lake East and Treeport subdivisions to underground lines. The purpose of this project is to mitigate risk and improve power reliability during adverse weather events. Once awarded, the FEMA federal grant funds will reimburse KEC for 90% of project construction costs.
Project Status: Funding approval from FEMA has been granted. Starting in June 2023, construction will begin for Construction Areas 2 and 3 (see map below). Construction will begin for Construction Area 1 during the spring of 2024.
