19/06/15: £24,000 boost for Preston’s power supply

Electricity North West has invested £24,000 to upgrade the power network which supplies electricity to more than a hundred residents in Grimsargh, Longridge in Preston.
£24,000 boost for Preston’s power supply
Next week engineers will start to replace ageing equipment at a local substation on Ribblesdale Drive which has kept the lights on in the area since 1968.

The essential four-day project will help ensure 160 local customers receive a reliable power supply to their homes now and in the future.

David Kenneford, plant project manager for Electricity North West, said: “Our engineers will be working in the area to replace ageing electricity equipment which has served the area well for the last 50 years.

“We'll be providing generators to make sure that residents won't suffer any disruption to their power supply, but unfortunately they can be a little noisy and take up some room. We'll do the work as quickly as we can to minimise disruption and restore the mains supply as soon as possible.

“We hope local customers understand the need for this essential project and we would like to thank them in advance for their cooperation.”

If anyone living in the area has any queries about the project, they are advised to call Electricity North West on 0800 195 4141 or follow us @ElectricityNW.
