Alliant Energy requests additional time to complete project in Royal
November 23, 2023
The electrical utility operator in Royal wants more time to comply with terms of an agreement with the city.
Torin Erickson, customer operations supervisor with Alliant Energy, said during the Nov. 8 city council meeting that Alliant Energy wants to extend the completion deadline for the underground electrical project. That deadline was established in an agreement reached in 2018.
One condition of the agreement was that Alliant Energy would bury all of the main electrical lines by Oct. 12, 2023. If they failed to do so by that date, the city could terminate the electrical franchise.
