Rochester Area Reliability Project

The Rochester Area Reliability project involves 1.8 miles of 345-kV circuit from the Chili Substation (new) to the Henrietta substation.  The project also includes two segments of 115 kV line – 9.6 miles from Chili to Gates and 11.1 miles from Chili to Station 23 Rochester.  Also, there will need to be about 2.0 miles of 115 kV rebuild along an existing railway.  In addition to the new Chili substation there will be planned improvements at Gates, Henrietta and Rochester.  Rochester Gas & Electric is a subsidiary of Iberdrola USA.
