Met-Ed completes $2.5M upgrades for Reading Health System campus

USA, Pennsylvania: Metropolitan Edison (Met-Ed), a subsidiary of FirstEnergy Corp., has recently completed about $2.5 million in electrical upgrades to support the new construction at Reading Health System’s West Reading campus. 

As part of the upgrade project, a new transformer has been installed in a substation near the hospital, as well as two new underground circuits, and the equipment ensuring the 24-building campus has dedicated backup electrical service, states FirstEnergy in the press release.

The new and expanded facilities at Reading Health’s West Reading campus resulted in an increase of about 3 MW of electrical load for Met-Ed, the equivalent of enough electricity to power approximately 3,000 homes.
