About the Project

The Van Dyke Station project is a proposed 115/13.2 kilovolt (kV) substation in the Town of Bethlehem, NY. The Bethlehem area is growing and increased demands are being placed on an aging electrical system. In fact, some of Bethlehem's substations are working beyond their intended capacity during peak summer times. The creation and expansion of Vista Tech Park, as an example, will place further demands on this at capacity system. The proposed project, which adds a new substation and retires the Juniper and Delmar substations, will benefit the growing area and support business expansion by upgrading to modern equipment better suited for current and future needs, as well as allow for rapid service restoration.
