KAYSVILLE -- The city council recently approved the purchase of several new transformers to update Kaysville City Power's main power substation on 200 North.
The process will upgrade the voltage in the center part of town making it consistent with the rest of the system, providing more opportunities for back feed in case of an outage.
The update will also provide the power company with additional capacity, and the ability to meet the service standards for the capital facilities plan, said Gary Hatch, power superintendent.
Approved was the purchase of one 10 MVA three phase transformer and three 667 KVA transformers from CG Power Systems of Washington, Mo., for a total of $372,595.
The transformers will arrive in time to be installed at the end of May or the beginning of June. Officials anticipate a power outage of about six hours to accommodate the installation process. Customers will be notified in advance of the outage.
