Electricity Capacity Increases In Mount ForestFebruary 16, 2017 10:22am
Mount Forest is in a better position for expansion.
Months of pole-line construction along Hwy. 6 and in the town have resulted in the completion of a second feeder-line supplying electricity to the town.
The collaboration between Wellington North Power and Hydro One Networks is in response to the electricity capacity issue facing Mount Forest. The Township of Wellington North owns 97% of Wellington North Power.
Mayor Andy Lennox says securing the second-line feeder overcomes the potential electricity capacity barrier for future growth.
“This is a great achievement for the utility, the Township and our community,” says Jim Klujber, chief operating officer for Wellington North Power. “This second feeder increases our electricity capacity servicing Mount Forest and prepares us for future growth and economic development in the area. We completed this construction project on time and within budget.”
