A high-voltage cable termination inside the Rossdale Substation is nearing the end of its useful life and needs to be replaced. Substations are a part of the electrical system and are generally connected by two or more high-voltage transmission lines. The Rossdale Substation converts electricity from high-voltage power lines (transmission lines) to lower voltages that can be distributed to homes and businesses in the area. A cable termination is the specific point in the system at which the cable starts or ends. The cable termination being replaced is shown on the map in green.
To complete this project, crews will work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This project will require the use of a generator, which will produce noise similar to an idling car. This work is expected to begin in in the Fall/Winter 2020 and will take approximately six weeks to complete.
