Lt. Gov. Drew Wrigley, center right, and Mark Brehm, Cando, president of Central Power Electric Cooperative, Inc., board of directors, center left, share a laugh Wednesday moments after the ribbon has been cut to officially recognize the opening of a new $7 million substation facility for Verendrye Electric Cooperative southwest of Minot and 17 miles of transmission lines, worth $5 million. Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D., also attended and spoke at the ceremony. “This state is a powerhouse for the nation,” Hoeven said in recognition of North Dakota’s top national economic status in context of the event. “What we’re doing here today is what makes this happen.” The 110,000-volt substation will help ease electrical needs and provide greater reliability to a growing Minot and Minot Air Force Base, as well as rural areas nearby. Central Power also hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house for a $4 million addition to its headquarters in Minot.
