Installation of 44.0 kV Feeder in Belleville

The City of Belleville, located on the north shore of the Bay of Quinte and situated between Toronto and Montreal, is home to approximately 18,300 residential and business customers. The city is home to a large industrial park housing major industries. To help meet the growing demand for electricity in the area, Elexicon Energy will be installing a new 44.0 kV feeder. The work will commence around mid-June 2024 and be completed by late October 2024 (approx.).

Seaton Transformer Station

Energized on December 11, 2022, the Seaton Municipal Transformer Station is Elexicon Energy’s first municipal transformer station owned and operated by the organization. It will provide connection capacity for approximately 20,000 homes and businesses in the City of Pickering and Town of Ajax to support the growth in these communities and allow for renewable energy resources.

Belleville Operations Centre

On July 5, 2023, Elexicon Energy held a ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the completion of its new Belleville Operations Centre. The 16,000 square feet facility houses staff from Lines, Metering, Engineering & GIS teams all under one roof, and is a wonderful example of Elexicon’s commitment to the communities that it serves as well as to their economic development and prosperity. As Elexicon’s eastern energy hub, the organization is committed to supporting the Government of Ontario’s goals to building homes faster and ensuring reliability and resiliency for all customers – residential and commercial.
