Renovations underway for two Danville substations
Renovation work has begun on two substations in Danville, California.
The Whitmell and Kentuck Substations are in the process of renovations and will be completed later this summer.
The Director of Utilities for the City of Danville, Jason Grey, says these upgrades are good maintenance and will help attract new developments.
“When you’re in economic development discussion, it’s always brought up as far as what’s the reliability on a certain circuit or substation so if a company looking to come in they’re going to want that kind of information,” said Grey.
The renovations cost $2 to $3 million each and will last for the next 30-40 years.
The transformers and breakers being replaced are reportedly from the 1970s.
