New Transformer Delivered to Orchard View Substation

As the community grows, Benton PUD expands substation to provide sufficient energy supply.
Last week Benton PUD took a delivery of a new power transformer at our Orchard View substation on Columbia Center Boulevard.
This addition will allow Benton PUD to meet the near term capacity requirements for the Vista Field area and surrounding development while the BPA interconnection request for Edison Street Substation is being processed.
Additionally this second bay will also provide long term incremental capacity for further development of the west 10th avenue and Clodfelter road areas extending on Bob Olsen Parkway into the Southridge development area.

Benton PUD is dedicated to serving our customers and our community. We're happy to see our community continue to develop and be a part of making it a better place to be.
