Electric Department Ramps up for Conversion

A crane was used to set the 78,000 lb transformers in place. One transformer is located in the Comtech SubStation, with the other located in the Main SubStation. The installation of the Comtech SubStation transformer went into effect the weekend of April 21. A large production factory in the Industrial Park was switched to the higher primary voltage after successful implementation of the new transformer.

Electric crew members will work on switching sections of the eastern service territory to the higher primary voltage throughout the next few months. Planned temporary outages may occur throughout this conversion process.

The eastern corridor of our service territory is being upgraded as a result of the voltage conversion. It will provide stable power supply to support growth in the industrial park, and increased demand in the commercial and residential customer classes.
