USA, New York: The New York State Public Service Commission (PSC) has approved Con Edison’s Brooklyn/Queens Demand Management (BQDM) Programme to address overload of sub-transmission feeders serving Brownsville 1 and 2 substations.
The programme proposes around 52 MW of non-traditional utility and customer-side solutions as well as a 17 MW of traditional utility infrastructure investment, reports Breaking Energy.
This includes 80 MW load transfer to the Glendale substation, addition of a fourth power transformer to the Newtown substation, and fifth power transformer at the Glendale substation, all of which could potentially defer the need for building a new substation.
The programme has been designed by Con Edison to address increased customer electric demand in Brooklyn and Queens from 2017 to 2019.
