Crews complete upgrades at Whitmell substation

Construction crews have completed the rebuild of the Whitmell electrical substation. The station has new breakers, transformer, and relay protection equipment.

Crews now will begin upgrades to the Southside substation on Hughes Street and the Westover substation. It is anticipated these projects being completed by July.

Danville Utilities has been aggressively upgrading its system over the past five years. Upgrades at the Bridge Street, Brantley, Kentuck, Schoolfield, and Riverside substations are complete. 

Also, Danville Utilities will expand the West Fork electrical substation in the Brosville community. Construction could begin in early 2022, with the facility completed by the middle of 2023.

The West Fork expansion will add a fourth delivery point from Appalachian Power. Whether energy is purchased from Appalachian Power or another source, every kilowatt of electricity used by Danville Utilities is delivered from Appalachian Power’s grid.

Danville Utilities’ existing delivery points for Appalachian Power are off Kentuck Road, at Riverside Drive and Arnett Boulevard and at the Danville Utilities location at Monument Street.
