Eversource (formerly CL&P) is proposing to construct a new 115-kilovolt (kV) bulk substation and two new 115-kV underground transmission lines in Greenwich, Conn. The proposed Greenwich Substation and Line Project will extend approximately 2.3 miles between the existing Eversource substation in Cos Cob to a new substation. A public information session will be held by Eversource on Tuesday March 3, 2015 in the Town Hall Meeting Room from 6:00 to 8:00p.m. According to Eversource, the project is necessary to address increasing customer demand and improve reliability of electric supply in Greenwich.
The existing electric infrastructure serving Greenwich is expected to reach its maximum capacity in 2017 according to Eversource who wish to add a new substation on order to meet expected customer demand for about 30 years.
In addition to the public information meeting, the project will also be on the agenda on March 4, 2015 at Architectural Review Committee at 7:00pm in the Town Hall Meeting Room and on March 10, 2015 at the Planning and Zoning Commission at 7:00pm Town Hall Meeting Room.
