American Electric was hired by Heart Utilities to replace a transformer and primary cable at the Silver Creek Apartments. Located east of the St. John’s River off of Atlantic Blvd, this was a neighborhood job as our office is less than a minute away from our office.
The defective transformer was originally installed in the 1970’s and causing the primary switch to fail, creating a power outage for the building. This required the installation of the new transformer. Power was supplied to the transformer using a flexible PVC conduit encasing the line and placed in the dirt 8ft deep. The line was then navigated 300ft by a locator to the utility pole and terminated at the jack with the provided power from the overhead power lines.
As we were contracted by Heart Utilities, American Electric was able to resolve the issue and give power back to the residents of the building.
