Accuracy[edit]

I doubt the 6900 volt figure. I believe 69000 is correct, but have no reference. LorenzoB (talk) 16:15, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

Coverage[edit]

It would be interesting to know how long it took REA to reach 25%, 50% and 75% of the rural areas (we never have reached 100%), or maybe have a map showing the coverage in a given year. I know my mom in northern MN finally got electricity in the end of 1949, then they moved to a ranch in North Dakota which did not yet have electricity. Nerfer (talk) 21:51, 20 March 2012 (UTC)
