The work on the distribution system involves the upgrade of the five 4.16kV distribution systems to 25kV in an effort to improve reliability and ensure the system meets existing and future load growth.  It is an extensive project involving the construction of two new stations, replacement of transformers, conductors, insulators and poles, and extensions to existing transmission lines.
