Dirtwork underway for new substation

Dirt work underwayContractors were leveling land early this week on the north side of Highway 32, east of Petersburg, for a new 115kV substation. This facility will eventually accommodate both the transfer of power from the new Loredo Ridge windfarm, and the Petersburg-to-Ericson transmission line to serve a pumping station on the Keystone XL pipeline project. A collector substation will be built by Midwest Wind Energy next to this NPPD substation.
