New Gardenville

As part of our commitment to provide safe, reliable service to all our customers, New York State Electric & Gas (NYSEG), in conjunction with our parent company – AVANGRID, is updating the delivery system in our service areas. These upgrades comply with new electric transmission reliability requirements. While making investments to meet the community’s growing energy demands, we are working closely with our neighbors to ensure that all improvements are performed with minimal disruption to the environment and the communities we serve.

 
To comply with more stringent reliability standards issued by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), we are planning an upgrade of certain components of the electric delivery systems in the Town of West Seneca. Specifically, we will be rebuilding the New Gardenville substation to improve its reliability, upgrade its infrastructure, and enhance its capabilities on behalf of our valued NYSEG customers.

This upgrade project will improve the overall resiliency of the entire system while simultaneously modernizing the circuit’s components.
