North Charlotte Substation Gets Security Upgrades
NEW HANOVER TOWNSHIP PA – A construction crew working on behalf of electricity supplier Metropolitan Edison is expected to be back on the job Monday (Feb. 6, 2023) to remove and replace a decaying masonry enclosure at the utility’s Ringing Rocks substation at 2511 N. Charlotte St. near Anthony Drive.
Last week workers (at top) began taking down, section-by-section, walls the utility company built years ago (above) to create a rectangular area that keeps unauthorized persons out and protects the machinery within, Med-Ed Senior Communications Representative Todd Meyers said. They consist of concrete panels fronted with a brick facade, and have shown visible signs of deterioration over time.
The walls are being replaced by new steel fencing that will allow law enforcement agencies and others to easily see inside the complex from a distance, and also provide greater security. Meyers said the substation will receive additional lighting and other security-related upgrades.
