Electrical Distribution Conversion

The project included full services for the conversion of the utility’s distribution circuitry from overhead to underground.  The conversion was completed in several project phases as part of a multi-year process.  The project also included the construction of several new circuits that were integrated to new substations being built in the same timeframe.  DGR services for the project included the reliability study work, preliminary planning, permitting, engineering design, material procurement assistance, construction administration, and resident project observation.
