Baraboo allows expansion of its riverfront substation

USA, Wisconsin: Wisconsin Power & Light and American Transmission Co. have been granted permission to expand the Baraboo substation at 125 Vine St. as long as they shield the power equipment from public view.

The expansion will include upgrades to the substation’s technology that will allow the company to “sectionalize” the local power grid, reports

This should help isolate outages, limiting them to smaller segments of the system which would not affect the entire grid.
