DEC completes Sussex expansion Delaware Electric Cooperative (DEC) recently completed a con- struction project in one of Sussex County's fastest growing areas. DEC energized two new circuits at its Dirickson Substation on County Road 381. The substation, which serves the unincorporated areas west of Fenwick Island, has experienced an annual growth rate of 6 percent since 1990, k The two-month project was completed on Feb. 25, and is a re- sult of DEC's long-range plan- ning, which in turn will provide consumers in that area with con- tinued, reliable electric service. The 69-kilovolt Dirickson Substa- tion now has a total of six circuits serving 3,259 customers, an in- crease of about 400 consumers. "The project increases our abili- ty to serve more consumers in this area and balance the electric load much more evenly which is espe- cially important in the summer when the population here increas- es," said DEC spokesman Jim Smith. "Although we are experi- encing growth throughout our en- tire service territory, the most dra- matic growth is occurring in east- ern Sussex areas that extend west- ward from the coastal regions." Smith said that the expansion " will also minimize widespread outages and give the Co-op more flexibility in shifting loads when restoring power or performing maintenance. The total cost for the project was $300,000 and the pri- mary contractor was Shore Line Construction, Inc. of Milton. "This is just part of our ongoing commitment of preparing for the future," said Smith. "At one time, this region was primarily season- al, but that's gradually changing."
