We have an Electrical Contractor installing 6 miles of line on ‘M’ Road, going from Hwy 66A to Hwy 43 and Stagecoach Road (South of Bennet). This line supplies power to both Douglas and Bennet.
The construction will start on Monday October 19th and is to be completed in January of 2021. Should an outage be required during this process we will do our best to inform you before hand.
Update 10/16/2020 We are upgrading the system to make it better and more reliable. The new line is expected to strengthen the services in this area, along with the installation of larger insulators to allow longer distances, providing extended clearance. We will also be increasing the varmint protection around the insulators to prevent animals from tripping the conductors, along with putting wraps on the poles so squirrels and raccoons can’t climb the poles from the ground. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to provide the best quality service for the lowest possible cost.
