Each year, Delmarva Power makes important enhancements to the local energy grid to maintain safe and reliable service for our customers. This involves upgrading, modernizing and expanding our electric system to meet the growing needs of our customers and the communities we serve.
Delmarva Power completed construction of the Crest Substation at the end of 2017 to help maintain reliable electric service in Cecil County, Md. The new substation serves nearly 6,000 customers. By expanding the capacity of the local energy grid and improving its resiliency, the substation helps reduce the number of potential outages for customers in the region and helps shorten the length of outages that do occur. In addition, the substation creates a smarter energy grid, automating certain functions on the electric system to deliver energy more efficiently for our customers.
