Baker Substation Capacity Upgrade Project

Why are we performing this project?

As part of our long-term plan to modernize the energy grid we will be making upgrades in your area. Our priority is to make sure you have access to safe, reliable energy into the future. Upgrading our equipment will help improve power quality for the community, make the system more resilient and reliable for power outages and prepare the grid for future growth. We understand this work may impact you, and we will do everything we can to minimize any inconvenience.
