Wind Turbines Require Underground Electric Cable

Joseph Coupal - Friday, January 18, 2013

The wind energy industry in the U.S. received good news recently. With the extension of the Production Tax Credit, which financially supports many of the country’s wind energy projects, the industry has managed to secure at least another year of dynamic growth.

Massachusetts has become one of the leaders in wind energy. While most people think only turbines are needed, underground electric cables are needed to connect the power generated by the turbines to the energy grid.

Wind farms require wind turbines and miles of underground electric cable. The wind power industry needs electric cables that span all the various voltages because wind turbines transmit power from the generators to ground-based equipment through large cables.

To ensure that your wind power project is successfully connected to the grid, contact ElecComm to install the project’s underground cabling.

Underground High Voltage Cable Repairs

Joseph Coupal - Friday, January 11, 2013

Underground electrical cables distribute electricity to homes, parking lot lighting, and commercial developments. Underground high voltage cables have problems less frequently  than overhead lines, but they do degrade over time and break.

Underground high voltage cables are subject to breaks or faults. When this happens ElecComm can locate the underground cable and the break and make the repair.

Underground electrical cables are more convenient and eye appealing, but when a problem occurs only the services of an expert underground cable specialist can help. If you are a landowner, developer or construction company who needs high voltage cable repair, contact ElecComm.

Wind Power needs Underground Cabling

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, June 06, 2012

With the increased interest in wind energy, states have been experimenting with wind power. Massachusetts also offers incentives to companies willing to invest in wind energy. Therefore Massachusetts has become one of the leaders in wind energy.

But turbines are not all that is needed for a wind farm. Those the turbines are what the public sees, less visible are the underground electric cables, which will connect the power generated by the turbines to the energy grid.

Electric Cables span the wind power industry all at various voltages. Wind turbines transmit power from their generators to ground-based equipment through large cables capable of handling many Amps.

To meet the energy needs of the communities they serve, wind farms require wind turbines and miles of underground medium, high, and low voltage cable.

Are you in the wind power industry? To ensure that the project is successfully connected to the grid, locally-source the installation. Contact ElecComm to install the project’s underground cabling.
