New Electric Substation & Backup Feeder System to Improve Reliability of Service

Posted on February 26, 2019 at 8:17 AM by Clara Siegele

  • New substation is online.
  • Three new feeder lines that can be switched to divert power to city around an outage problem are now operating.
  • A new transformer that will serve as a backup is being installed. This will allow maintenance to be done on the current unit or a failure to be dealt with by brief switching, rather than a day or two long outage.
