[ARCHIVED] Construction begins for Mill Street Substation

Mill Street Substation Starts Construction

Nelson Hydro is upgrading the Mill Street substation at 1211 Mill St. by replacing all existing infrastructure in two phases. The project will improve system reliability by replacing equipment that has reached the end of its serviceable life, and increase system capacity to meet Nelson Hydro customers’ growing demand for electrical power. The project will begin in September 2023 and is expected to be completed by August 2024. The new substation equipment will be installed within the current substation footprint.

Martech Electrical Systems Ltd. is the general contractor for the project. Inquiries regarding the Mill St. Substation Upgrade project may be directed to Nelson Hydro’s Project and Customer Service Manager at 250-352-8287.

How will local residents be impacted?

  • Construction crews will be present on site and in the area. 
  • No parking signs will be placed along the 1200 block of Mill St. for the duration of the project to reduce congestion. 
  • Oversized equipment deliveries will require temporary road closures. Traffic accommodation plans will be utilized at these times.
  • The project is not expected to cause residential power outages. If an outage is required, notice will be given to affected customers.
