Delaware Electric building new warehouse space


Delaware Electric Co-op, Greenwood, is expanding its warehouse space from 8,000 to a newly constructed 20,000 square foot site.

Vice President of Engineering and Operations, Dave Shapley, said that the project is scheduled to be finished by the end of this year.

“We started about a year and a half ago. We had to get permits and various related agency approvals before the project could begin. We got the notice to proceed on November 14th, 2016,” Shapley said.

Crews began laying the concrete for the warehouse in June.


During the process, crews were able to use new ride-on trowels to smooth the concrete.

“They had ones you had walked behind, so now with these new units, they can finish the job much faster,” Shapley said.

The new warehouse will serve as a storage space for co-op equipment and supplies long into the future.
