Options to Accelerate Business

When you build in an area with limited electric service, we offer three options to accelerate substation construction time.

  1. Fast – AEP’s pre-engineered station design package includes the signature drawings of proven stations by some of the industry’s top station designers, plus purchase lists for all materials and equipment.
  1. Faster – Our “Station in a Box” features all the gear for a permanent station – structural steel, transformer, prefabricated drop-in control module, drawings, equipment and remaining gear, down to nuts and bolts – pre-packaged and stored in a portable steel container for shipment by truck directly to a prepared site.
  1. Fastest – The portable skid-mounted substation taps into an existing transmission line near your business site and runs wires to your front door. Low maintenance makes it durable for up to seven years. It is a more reliable, safer and “greener” interim source of power than noisy diesel generators.
