KEC received 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: Construction areas 2 and 3 are currently underway with an anticipated completion date of summer 2024. Construction area 1 will go out to bid during winter 2023/2024 with an anticipated start date of spring/summer 2024. Completion is projected during spring/summer 2025.
