Fortis has requested upgrades to the electric system in your area as the area has grown significantly in recent years and the demand for electricity has increased. Substation upgrades are required at a site near you to ensure residents and businesses continue to have a reliable supply of electricity. If approved, the upgrades to the existing substation include installing:
- one new 138/25 kilovolt (kV) transformer
- two new 138 kV circuit breakers
- one new switchgear and control building
- upgrading some existing equipment
Additionally, one existing 25kV circuit breaker will be salvaged, and the new switchgear building we are installing will contain six, 25 kV circuit breakers.
