N Line Electric has been a supplier of distribution voltage services to Colorado State University since 2000. We have them under contract to supply backup services for 13.8 kV underground distribution systems on Main and South Campuses and 13.2 kV overhead distribution system on Foothills Campus. We have over 300 electrical services, mostly three phase, approximately 6 miles of underground and over three miles of overhead distribution.
The work consists of installing and repairing underground duct banks, cable installation, cable terminations, surface and volt switch installation, testings and system troubleshooting. The overhead work consists of installing and repairing overhead three phase lines to include pole placement and replacement, conductors, transformers, crossarms, switches, arrestors, reclosers, sectionalizers, primary and secondary risers, and all associated hardware installation and replacement as needed to maintain and expand our system. With our overhead system N-Line has been relied on to work on the system hot because of the inability to shutdown the system due to electrical demands on Campus.
N Line Electric’s work has been outstanding over the years and we have grown to rely on them to assist us within a couple of hours of notification of the need of their help.
