Electrifying the last mile costs more than lighting up within city limits.

Monday, April 5th, 2010

Almost 75 years ago, congress passed a law to encourage the extension of electricity to the last mile.  In Minnesota, that last mile turned out to be 122,500 miles of distribution lines that stretch to the nook and cranny of every Minnesota County. Cooperatives like Arrowhead Electric count 6 members per mile, which garners about $15,230 in revenue for each mile of line. Compare that with Minnesota Power: 23.55 consumers and $82,221 in revenue per mile, and the average northern Minnesota municipal utility which averages 25-55 consumers per mile of line and garners up to $71,000 in revenue for that same mile of line.
