Station 127 Project

Reliability Upgrades

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

Project Purpose and Need            

To increase the reliability and redundancy of Station 127 (Canandaigua Division), a second transformer will be added to the existing substation. Since Station 127 and Station 121 are currently interdependent upon each other, this enhancement to the power source will relieve the load currently placed on Station 121 and thereby ensure a continuous power supply to the entire network under outage conditions.

Additionally, the installation of a second transformer and an access road at Station 127 will adequately prepare the facility for the proposed load from National Fuel Gas and their Empire Pipeline.
