Station 56 Project

Station 56 Project

Reliability Upgrades

As part of our commitment to provide safe, reliable service to all our customers, Rochester Gas and Electric Corporation (RG&E), in conjunction with our parent company – AVANGRID, is updating the delivery system in our service areas. These upgrades comply with new electric transmission reliability requirements. While making investments to meet the community’s growing energy demands, we are working closely with our neighbors to ensure that all improvements are performed with minimal disruption to the environment and the communities we serve.

Project Purpose and Need            

To comply with more stringent reliability standards issued by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), we are planning an upgrade of certain components of the electric delivery systems in the Town of Pittsford. Specifically, we will be reconfiguring Station 56 to enhance the reliability requirements of the station for our valued RG&E customers.

This upgrade project will improve the overall resiliency of the entire system while simultaneously introducing redundancy contingency options to reduce outage potentials.

Project Scope

  • Reconfiguring the existing transformers to ensure increased reliability of service.
  • Providing essential redundancy options to mitigate outage potential.
  • Expansion of the substation to accommodate the new components, including a corresponding fence expansion.
  • No new transmission lines will be added because of this project.
  • No new buildings will be added because of this project.
