A spare auto transformer that was moved from a rural OPPD substation to a location in northwest Omaha made quite a splash as it crept along city streets on the way to its new home.

In the time since that move, OPPD personnel have been busy installing it in the substation. Below are a few pictures from the big job.

The additional transformer will allow for added capacity to the Omaha substation, mainly to help bring electricity generated at wind projects to OPPD customers.
