SSEN electricity works public engagement event
Monday 24 February @ 15:00 - 18:00Free
One of two Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) two public engagement events for residents, business owners and stakeholders to find out more about the multi-million pound upgrade works designed to upgrade the electricity infrastructure from Petersfield to Fernhurst.
Attendees will be able to talk to SSEN’s team about the £8.4 million investment project which is scheduled to commence in March 2020, building resilience in the area’s power supply through the undergrounding of sections of cable and the refurbishment of the primary substation on Bedford Road in Petersfield, will also allow for future commercial and residential connections.
The substation element of the project alone will provide power to 10,000 customers, with the overall programme of works keeping the infrastructure resilient and secure for decades to come, while the undergrounding of almost 15km of cable between Petersfield and Fernhurst will provide increased security of supply by removing the reliance on the area’s overhead lines.
