Maintaining Milford's Electric Distribution System
The Electric Department maintains 1 substation with 4 circuits encompassing a 5-mile radius, as well as over 100 miles of overhead lines and 50 miles of underground lines. This distribution system is monitored and controlled by Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA).
Street lighting, security lighting, and some traffic lights are also maintained by the Electric Department. On occasion tree limbs / trees will be trimmed if they impede the performance of the electric system.
In addition to maintenance requirements, new pole lines and underground electric services are constructed and installed to expand services to new customers as well.
