Pennsylvania Electric Company Installs Laptops in Service Vehicles to Enhance Utility Work

Pennsylvania Electric Company (Penelec) has announced that it is installing laptop computers on more than 400 line trucks and support vehicles to enhance service and manage repair work. The $3.8 million project is expected to be completed later this year. Using the new laptops will help crews save time by viewing work orders electronically rather than writing the information down when radioed or phoned in from the company's dispatching office. The advanced technology displays detailed maps of Penelec's distribution and transmission systems and flags where other company crews are working. The laptop computers also use global positioning technology to provide turn-by-turn directions to work locations.

FirstEnergy Announces New Distribution Lines in Central Pennsylvania

FirstEnergy has announced that Pennsylvania Electric Company, or Penelec, is constructing new power lines and rebuilding others at a cost of nearly $6 million to serve natural gas pumping stations being constructed in central Pennsylvania. The new distribution lines will run nearly 15 miles from existing Penelec substations in McConnellstown and Blain and will provide electric service to new natural gas pumping stations being built in Marcklesburg and Doylesburg. The projects include installing wire, electrical equipment and more than 300 new steel, wood and laminate poles. The work is expected to be completed later this summer and is designed to handle the approximately 2.8 megawatts in new electric load anticipated on the Penelec system when the pumping stations are operational. In addition, the projects will help enhance service reliability for Penelec customers in Blain, Jackson Borough, Toboyne Township, Walker Township, and Penn Township. The work is part of FirstEnergy's plans to invest approximately $221 million in 2015 on service reliability infrastructure enhancements and transmission projects in Penelec's service area.
