The utility has purchased land from the City of Seymour on West Pearl St. for a new substation. That substation will replace existing installations on West Pearl near the American Legion clubhouse and on WIS 55 near the Outagamie County Fairgrounds. Those substations serve about 1,100 customers.
The new unit will feature new technology, upgrade voltage, provide greater reliability and promote growth, according to WE Energies spokesperson Irissol Arce. She said construction on the new substation should begin in April or May.
Line work has already begun and is being done in stages. Arce said there will be brief power outages in some affected areas. Customers there will be notified ahead of time.
Arce said the project will not only provide better service, but should allow for faster power restoration in the event of storms and prevent some outages to begin with.
