Rhode Island Power Company Updates Electricity Delivery System

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, June 13, 2012

Many power companies and the infrastructure that delivers electricity needs updating and upgrading. The Rhode Island Reliability Project is one of these projects. Nearly 750 power line poles have been installed thus far and National Grid is calling this the half-way point in the construction schedule of the Rhode Island Reliability Project. This project will strengthen the reliability of Rhode Island's power grid by increasing its capacity and allowing National Grid the flexibility to deliver electricity where it's needed when usage is at its highest.

The project includes the reconstruction of existing transmission lines and the addition of a new transmission line within an existing 21-mile corridor. More than 300 miles of power lines and nearly 750 new poles are being installed along with the installation of new equipment at substations in Rhode Island.

Transmission lines carry electricity from power plants to local distribution systems where the voltage levels are reduced in stages to provide electricity to homes and businesses. The new transmission line will enable more electricity to flow into the state as needed to meet customers' needs.

Your customers depend on your ability to deliver electricity to them every minute of every day. For electric line construction or when you need to improve the performance and reliability of the regional electric transmission system, contact ElecComm.
