New PPL substation serving 2,500

SUNBURY – Enhanced service for 2,500 PPL customers in Northumberland County is now complete. Work on a new distribution substation in Rockefeller Township has finished. PPL says the substation will enhance reliability for customers in Rockefeller and Lower Augusta Townships and part of Upper Augusta Township.

The new Augustaville substation cost $1.5-million to construct and was finished a month ahead of schedule. PPL says these customers will now be served from a new centralized facility. Before, they received services from a circuit from the Hamilton substation in Sunbury. (Ali Stevens)
