What to Look for When Hiring a Substation Contractor

Substations play an essential role in power delivery systems. They connect high voltage transmission lines to lower voltage distribution lines. Substations are typically equipped with transformers as well as switching, protection and control equipment. Large transformers house circuit breakers that are used to mitigate short circuits and overload currents. These components enable electricity to flow uninterrupted to customers linked to the substation.
When an entire substation goes down, there is a good chance that customers are without power. Utility companies need reliable equipment to maintain power throughout their distribution networks. Building and maintaining dependable substations is important to both public and private utility companies.

Substation contractors lend their expertise in construction to help utility companies build reliable substations. When so much is at stake, you need a partner you can trust. So, what should you look for in a substation contractor?
