Over £4million has been spent on a major initiative to boost power supplies in Rugby.
This new initiative, which took just under two years to complete, involved the replacement of a large amount of equipment at its grid site in Rugby, including several circuit breakers and transformers.
This work will help to further safeguard supply reliability to around 41,500 customers in the Rugby area and it will also better accommodate any increased demands placed on the power network in the future for additional developments.
“It ensures that we can provide a high level of service to these areas in the long term by improving the infrastructure and security of our electricity network,” said Duncan McKellar, WPD’s Projects Team Manager for the area.
The project forms part of WPD’s commitment to provide a consistently high level of service to customers. Around £2 billion will be invested by the company on its electricity network between 2010 and 2015.
