Campus Electrical Distribution Project

The work to upgrade the cable is necessary to convert the University¿s antiquated 4,160-volt electrical grid into a 35,000-volt bi-directional grid, ensuring a reliable system and redundancy capabilities to minimize the impact of power outages on campus. This first phase of the multiyear project began in winter 2018 and in coordination with Dominion Energy. Over winter break 2019, Dominion Energy completed their work at the substation located between the Steam Plant and the Wilton Center, enabling the installation of a new loop to be completed in the near future. Electrical shutdowns are tentatively planned to occur during time frames least impactful to campus including nights, weekends and breaks. These planned outages will be communicated by University Facilities.
