Substation upgrade in St Peters
Guernsey Electricity has committed to replacing a key substation in St Peter’s over the next two months before the seasonal increase in electricity demand this Winter.
The new equipment will be sited in the Rue du Felconte and Route des Adams area and will improve resilience and increase capacity in the local network, providing electricity to around 50 residential properties.
Mike Lloyd, Head of Distribution at Guernsey Electricity, said, “This installation forms an important part of our continual investment in the Island’s infrastructure and is required to make the local electricity network more robust and resilient and has also been designed to meet the increasing demands of homes and businesses in the area. This work is also required to allow us to replace a faulty substation and needs to be completed before the demand increases in the Winter in order to maintain secure customer supplies in the area.”
Mr Lloyd added: “To minimise inconvenience, we liaised closely with Traffic & Highways and delayed the work as much as possible until after last week’s West Show. We appreciate your patience during this period, and our team will endeavour to minimise the disruption where possible. ”
