Transmission line completed and energized

November 1, 2012

When a wind tower generates, the power has to have some place to go, and the job of the new transmission line is to make sure this takes place.
“This has been a successful project due to outstanding cooperation by the community and landowners involved,” said NPPD Project Manager Jedd Fischer, in the October NPPD newsletter “GRID.”

Sheriff issues scam warning

October 25, 2012

From Dan Osmond - Custer County Sheriff
