Harkin announces $5M for Pella Cooperative Electric

Pella — Sen. Tom Harkin's office has announced that over $5.6 million has been awarded, through FEMA, to Pella Cooperative Electric. 

The money, according to the release, is intended to be used to strengthen electrical delivery lines (128 miles' worth) in Marion and surrounding counties. 

“This assistance will help the Pella Cooperative Electric Association improve its service and reliability to help ensure that Iowa’s rural residents receive their electricity in a safe and efficient manner,” said Harkin.  “I congratulate the REC on this federal grant and look forward to the improvements it will generate for these counties.”

Sam Nichols, who sits on PCE's board of directors, was unaware of the award until contacted by The Chronicle. Look for more on this as the information is disseminated by PCE and shared with us.
