Avoca substation project

Ausgrid has recently upgraded the Avoca substation located on Picketts Valley Road in Picketts Valley, which supplies electricity to homes and businesses in Picketts Valley, Avoca and surrounding areas.

The project included construction of a new 11,000 volt switchroom and installation of equipment within the building. There were also modifications to the outdoor substation yard to accommodate a new 66,000 volt power line to Empire Bay.

The project was completed in April 2013.
