Bancroft Studies Hookup For Powor With REA Lino The Bancroft Council is studying the possibility of signing a contract to build an interchange hookup with the Com Belt Power Cooperative. The hookup would be made noar the Cogley farm 1.3 miles east of Bancroft at the point where the Corn Belt lines are the closest to Bancroft Vern Austin, Light plant superintendent, Joe Kramer, town clerk, Rudy Fangfnan, Don Murray, Fred Kadow, councilrnen, and M. V. Clark visited with two representatives of the Corn Belt company in Humboidt Wednesday evening. The Bancroft council explored the possibility of such a hookup in 1854, but at that time they could not qualify for the service. In order to tie-in with the Corn Belt Coop, a plant must have sufficient power, plus 15%, with their largest unit out of operation. Since that time the Bancroft plant has added the fifth diesel generating unit, The interchange hookup plan in brief is this: The Bancroft plant would build a substation and lines from the Cogley farm location to the local generating plant. The town could use this hookup strictly as insurance and never buy or use a single kilowatt of electricity. Or, the local plant could work out a schedule to take power from the highline at certain periods of the day, week, month or year, and then, repay the Corn Belt company the same number of kilowatts with no money changing hands at any time. This would allow the operation of the Bancroft generating units, and the Corn Belt units, to run at peak efficiency at all times. Similar hookups arid identical contracts have been signed by many Municipal Plants, and private utilities, with the Corn Belt Cooperative. Just ft few mentioned at the Wednesday night meeting are: Spencer, Webster City, New Hampton, ,Grundy Center, and Storm Lake. One town, the size of Bancroft or smaller, made such a connection and at certain periods of the year is purchasing 95% of its power from the cooperative. The 1954 estimate of cost of building the substation and lines into Bancroft from the Cogley location was $53,000.00. The present day cost is estimated at about $60,000.00. If the output of the Bancroft plant continues to grow, this hookup would not mean that they wouldn't have to purchase another generating unit eventually, but it would postpone *the purchase of a sixth unit in Bancroft.
