Aurora’s new substation nears completion

Progress continues on a new substation in Aurora, SD. Built next to an adjacent Western Area Power Administration substation, the new substation will provide a new delivery point for the city’s WAPA and Heartland power.

According to project officials, the structure is complete and has been tied in to the substation. The majority of the WAPA substation work is finished and the switchgear has been installed. Next, the crew plans to install the connections and install and energize the underground wires from the substation to the city.
