MILWAUKEE, Wis., Jan. 25, 2002 — Wisconsin Electric-Wisconsin Gas is rebuilding targeted locations of its overhead power lines in the Town of Eden in Fond du Lac County.
The electric system will be upgraded with new lines, poles, transformers and other equipment.
“This project will provide electric reliability improvements in this area by the time we complete the work around the end of March,” said Andrew Gumm, customer service manager for WE-WG, which is the main subsidiary of Wisconsin Energy Corp.
Wisconsin Energy’s Power the Future plan calls for the investment of $2.7 billion in local power lines, neighborhood substations and the rest of the delivery system to improve the reliability of electric service to customers and support continued economic growth in Wisconsin during the next 10 years.
The Eden work is being done by WE-WG and contract crews in an area roughly bounded by County Truck Highway F & one mile north of F on the north, Woodland Drive on the south, Highway W on the east, and Creek View Road on the west. Work also includes tree trimming to provide clearances from power lines. Property owners in the area are being contacted prior to the beginning of the construction project.
Wisconsin Electric-Wisconsin Gas, the principal utility subsidiary of Wisconsin Energy Corp. (NYSE: WEC), serves more than one million electric customers and more than 960,000 natural gas customers throughout Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
