Indiana Michigan Power calls for infrastructure overhaul
BERRIEN COUNTY, Ind. – Indiana Michigan Power revealed in a press release on Monday that they are seeking infrastructure improvements at the Cook Nuclear Plant and across southwest Michigan.
The improvements would cost $478 million dollars.
Indiana Michigan Power says the overhaul would replace more than 1,200 poles, 40 miles of wires and other equipment that are nearly expired in terms of usage.
Indiana Michigan Power claims that the repairs will boost efficiency in infrastructure in addition to benefiting the economy by creating job opportunities.
But despite the improvements, the average customer would experience an increase of $36 in their monthly payments.
The Cook Nuclear Plant provides power to more than 1.5 million homes.
