New substation in Oregon ready to go live

USA, Oregon: Umatilla Electric Cooperative’s (UEC) new Hermiston East Substation located in the city of Hermiston, Oregon is to start operation later this month.

The substation features newer technology and equipment, including one power transformer, but UEC plans to add a second transformer sometime in the future as the Hermiston area continues to grow, reports East Oregonian.

The substation is owned by UEC, but it will also serve Hermiston Energy Services customers. It will help provide the added capacity needed to keep up with the growth in Hermiston and surrounding areas.
