RUMFORD, ME, March 24, 2011 (Local News) -Work continues on a $5.26 million electricity substation on the former Railroad Street next to NewPage Corp.

NewPage spokesman Tony Lyons said Wednesday that the Interconnect Project, as it is called, "is a substation that allows two streams of electrical power to be separated as they go out into the grid."

"When we sold our hydropower facilities to Brookfield Renewable Power, there was a requirement in the sale to separate the two power streams," he said.

"Of course, up until then, all of the electricity that was produced by the hydro came into the mill, and then the extra was passed out of the mill on a single line."
