Kyle Muret, Electric Chief Engineer
Stillwater Electric Utility (SEU) will install an additional circuit along four miles of existing power lines on the northeast portion of the city. Along Husband Street, the existing power line will move slightly to the west, to increase the distance from the roadway and allow the trees to flourish.
The modifications will increase reliability of SEU's power system and connect the new Stillwater Energy Center to the electric system at more than one point and permit sections of the system to be isolated to better manage problems and reduce outages. In addition, this work is an integral part of the program to move toward using advanced protective relaying equipment that is designed to protect the electric system and rapidly isolate outages.
Date Feb. 7, 2014: Bids for a general contractor were received.
Construction is scheduled to start in May and conclude in August of this year.
