BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Minot-based Central Power Electric Cooperative is getting a $46 million federal loan for infrastructure improvements.

The money is through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Utilities Service. The Minot-based co-op will use it to build 51 miles of transmission line and make improvements to its distribution system.

Central Power serves more than 56,000 customers in 25 counties. The co-op last year got a loan guarantee of more than $29 million through USDA for work to improve rural electric service.
