Yard Power Upgrade (Project No. 301-0144)

This project provides a new feed from the power utility (United Illuminating) for the yard power distribution system.  This is required because, as the new yard facilities are brought online, power consumption is anticipated to exceed the capacity of the existing feeders. In addition, the existing feeders are shared with other customers, are aerial, and are on the same pole line. 

This project provides two dedicated feeders with sufficient capacity for long term future expansion, installed underground and fed directly from UI’s Water Street substation, with a new Point of Entry (POE) enclosure constructed on the former USPS property adjacent to the Rt. 34 overpass.  This serves as the interface between UI and MNR.  A new ductbank feeds the existing Hallock Street substation from the new POE.
