Energy to the downtown area is supplied by 70-year-old, oil filled lead cable. This area is where most of the Village’s essential facilities are located, such as Police, Fire, medical facilities, water and electric utilities, churches, shelters, gas stations, pharmacies, banks, supermarkets, etc. Upgrades to this cable supplying the downtown area would increase the reliability and resilience of the downtown electric grid. With current technology, we will have the ability to remotely parallel and switch with other circuits creating another layer of reliability and durability. Ensuring the availability of the Village’s essential services for its residents and neighbors.
