Geocache Description:


Your local energy provider provides you with Natural Gas and Electricity. That is if you live on this side of the lake.

This cache is to let you know about your surroundings, often times we take for a granted the utilities that come to our homes and businesses.

 

When visiting this cache you'll be near one of Your Local Energy Providers distribution substation.

 

This Substation operates at 115kV, and services the surrounding communities, including Hunts Point, Medina, Yarrow Point, and Evergreen Point. Though the way that the electrical system is designed, if one of the substations comes offline, it doesn't necessarily mean that those communities will lose power, as the system is back fed off of other nearby substations.

 

Well, there you have it, now next time you drive by this system you'll know what it is and have a brief understanding of how the power gets from the dams, coal mines, gas generators, etc. to your home.
