The Wiremill Substation and Extension Project involves:
The existing substation was originally built in the 1950s with wood support structures that are deteriorating. It has also experienced frequent outages in recent years. Building the new substation improves electric service reliability for customers, reduces frequent equipment maintenance and the number of temporary power outages.
Company officials expect construction to begin in early 2023 and conclude in summer 2023.
The project involves installing steel poles.
