Station 43

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 City of Rochester. Specifically, we will be rebuilding Station 43 to increase its capacity, improve its asset conditions, and enhance the reliability requirements of the
station for our valued RG&E customers.

The station’s current capabilities are over loaded, and it has exceeded its peak operating levels. This upgrade will enrich the integrity of the entire transmission system in the local area.
