Black Earth, Mazo may form bond


August 3, 2017

The Village of Mazomanie may join forces with Black Earth to tie together parts of the two electric systems.

The public utility commissions of the two villages recommended entering into an agreement to link the systems as the least-cost way to solve both area’s infrastructure deficiencies.

Mazomanie’s most pressing concern is to upgrade a section of old four-kilowatt line, which has limited the ability of the utility to create loops that would help prevent and manage blackouts to limit the number of customers affected and the length of time. Most village lines are 12-kilowatt.
