Hess Station Project

We're working hard to improve your electric service.

As part of our efforts, we're upgrading equipment on two circuits to support the area's growing energy needs. This involves underground and overhead work. The upgraded equipment will help meet existing local electric needs and support future growth and economic development by providing greater energy capacity.

Our crews are trained in COVID-19 prevention and will practice safety protocols as appropriate.

Thank you for your cooperation as we work to improve your electric service. Please visit this page for regular project updates and answers to frequently asked questions.
