Industrial Park growth powers on
The Badger Power Marketing Authority (BPMA) transformer capacity at the Clintonville Substation will be exceeded with the additions currently being undertaken by Walker Forge, Inc. In advance of the increased electrical loads, a new, second transformer is being installed at the Clintonville Substation. BPMA is paying for the transformer and the associated installation costs. It is scheduled to be in service in May.
Clintonville Utilities need to install two additional distribution lines out of the BPMA substation, which will tie into the city's existing distribution system to get the new power to customers. The two new distribution lines are described as follows: one line will be completely underground; the other will have both overhead and underground portions.
The city is hiring contractors to construct these two lines. The contractors will do the installation, boring, and other set up work. Materials (poles, switches, wires, etc.) for this project are being purchased separately and are not part of bids that were submitted to the city in March. Materials quotes are coming in at approximately $100,000. The city is buying the materials and hiring out the labor. This project was budgeted for 2012.
The City Council approved a bid from MJ Electric in the amount of $104,958.05 for the construction and installation of the new power lines.
Group B Bids were also received for a potential future project of a new substation in the northwest part of the city. The project is contingent on receiving approvals from the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin and other governing bodies. MJ Electric had the lowest bid for the Group B project as well, coming in at $170,301.
