    UIs transmission business unit, established in 2006, achieves growth by identifying, pursuing and capturing transmission opportunities to enhance reliability and market efficiency and deploying infrastructure solutions that provide stakeholder value.

     

    The 345,000 volt (345 kV) Transmission System

    The highest level of transmission voltage currently within the UI system is 345,000 volts (345 kV).  This level of the transmission system consists of approximately 11 miles of both overhead high voltage lines and underground cable systems. The system is interconnected to the New England 345 kV electric grid and our neighboring utilities.

     

    The 115,000 volt (115 kV) Transmission System

    The next highest transmission level in the UI system is 115,000 volts (115 kV) consisting of approximately 93 miles of overhead high voltage lines and approximately 17 miles of underground cable systems.  A majority of the 115 kV system overhead high voltage lines are within the Connecticut Department of Transportation railroad right of way between New Haven and Fairfield, while the underground system is typically within metropolitan areas of New Haven and Bridgeport.  The 115 kV transmission system provides power to several transmission (115 kV) to distribution (13.8 kV) level substations.  The 13.8 kV distribution infrastructure at these substations provides power to localized commercial, industrial and residential customers.
