WKU Continues High Voltage Project

bg utilities 300BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (6/4/13) – Around 11 years ago, Western Kentucky University began upgrading high voltage connection throughout campus. They are working with Bowling Green Municipal Utilities to convert campus from 4,160 volt distribution power to 12,470 volt.

"We've been doing this in phases," Bryan Russell, Director of Planning, Design and Construction of WKU, said. "We typically do it in the summer months when we are less busy."

This summer's project is to connect Cherry Hall, Potter Hall and Garrett Conference Center to the voltage. Construction began near the top of the hill on May 13, the day after Commencement.

Russell said the advantage to this connection is that they are getting rid of overhead power lines and going underground.

The project is planned to be finished on Aug. 17.
