A Co-Mo Electric Cooperative project is helping a Missouri business grow.
Cooperative linemen are currently working along a two-mile stretch just north of Excelsior Drive in Versailles, bringing a higher-powered service to NutraAg. The business produces feed for area farmers and pet owners.
The work involves fulfilling NutraAg’s request to change single-phase service to three-phase service, according to a news release from Co-Mo.
“With the service we had, we were completely maxed out,” NutraAg owner Leonard Martin stated in the release. “We weren’t able to add on additional equipment. The new three-phase service will allow us to run bigger motors and continue to expand as we need to.”
Planning for the project began in early July, and the heaviest work has already begun, according to the release.
The project is expected to be complete in early September.
