Buckeye Rural to build new substation

www.herald-dispatch.com [cached]

"The engineering is under way," said Steve Oden, vice president of customer service for Buckeye Rural."Site preparation should be finished by fall and construction will begin early next year and be completed in the summer to fall of 2005."

While it won't create any permanent jobs, the project will provide a dozen or more construction jobs for five or six months, Oden said.The project, which will cost between $500,000 and $1 million, will replace a substation in the area that's 40 or 50 years old and is among the oldest in the system, he said.
"Historically we've had a lot of problems in that area," he said.Customers should see greatly improved service once the project is finished, he said.The new substation will create a better network and backup of electrical feeds in case another substation is out of service, he said.
The electric cooperative also plans to relocate some transmission lines in the area, Oden said.The existing lines in rural areas are hard to get to and service, he said.No cost estimates are available for that part of the project, he said.
The substation is large enough to handle projected growth in the area due to construction of the Tri-State Outer Belt, also called the Chesapeake Bypass project, he said.

Rates for residential, commercial, and three-phase power users will be adjusted, effective with bills tendered in April of 2006, according to Buckeye Rural Electric Cooperative spokesman Steve Oden.

In order to keep pace with the higher cost of doing business, it became necessary for the BREC Board of Trustees to review our rates," said Oden.
They decided to delay our rate adjustment until spring," explained Oden.
Although fuel costs have moderated somewhat, we can expect continued volatility in the energy markets," Oden said.
The spring adjustment, combined with certain service fee increases, allows BREC to maintain a Rural Utilities Service-approved earning ratio on its electric distribution business.
Wholesale power costs for generation and transmission are recovered through the energy charge and will continue to be passed through to consumers.
Oden noted that BREC is also changing its bill format in the spring.
"We have contracted with a bill printer and mailer located here in Ohio. Previously, our electric bills were produced in Alabama," he said.
"The new format will be more understandable and concise, with lots more information of use to BREC members, including a plainly visible 'due date' above the fold of the bill," Oden added.

"We were interested in finding a type of green power that was, No. 1, not intermittent, like wind or solar," said Steve Oden, a spokesman for Buckeye, which will not charge extra for the power.
