Station 210 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            

the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), we are planning an upgrade of certain components of the electric delivery systems in the Village Sodus. Specifically, we will be modernizing Station 210 to increase its capacity, improve its asset conditions, and enhance the reliability requirements of the station for our valued RG&E customers.

This modernization and replacement effort will improve the overall resiliency of the grid while simultaneously upgrading the technological components and improving the appearanceof the substation.
