Logan County Electric Cooperative looks to upgrade with federal funds

A local project is among $126 million in loans that will upgrade rural electric infrastructure across eight states.

The project will build 32 miles of electric lines in rural Logan County.

The Logan County Electric Cooperative will get a $4.5 million loan, with $331,100 going into a smart grid project. The smart grid will help to prevent power outages and help restore power quicker.

The money will also be used to replace conductors and poles.

Ohio Rural Development State Director Tony Logan said, “The Logan County Electric Cooperative has been a reliable provider of electric service to nearly 5,000 households for decades. Their application of state-of-the-art ‘Smart Grid’ technologies will achieve new efficiencies which ultimately will benefit their users.”
