Utility completes substation, transmission line

BANGOR, Maine — Bangor Hydro Electric Co. has announced completion of a project it says will improve reliability of the electrical system in lower Hancock County.

The work included a 14-mile, 115,000-volt transmission line from Ellsworth to Trenton and a new substation in Trenton.

The utility said the project creates a redundant and higher capacity connection to the region. It said the line follows existing transmission lines most of the way, and existing lines will continue to operate.
