NYSEG Enhances Electricity Transmission Facilities to Help Ensure Safe, Reliable Service
– NYSEG, a subsidiary of Iberdrola USA, has invested nearly $1.2 million in Binghamton-area electricity transmission facilities to enhance safe, reliable service to its customers in Chenango Forks and along the Route 12 corridor north to Greene. Transmission lines and substations are the backbone of the electricity delivery system.
The five-month project that was completed earlier this summer included replacing approximately three miles of power lines on existing poles in the Chenango Bridge/Kattelville area and installing specialized equipment that will provide voltage support during times of particularly high customer demand for electricity.
In 2012, NYSEG expects to invest more than $160 million in electricity infrastructure and another $40 million in natural gas infrastructure across its service area.
