Some Livonia businesses and homes near Levan and I-96 received electrical equipment upgrades this week. This work, done just south of I-96 across the highway from Madonna University, required installing new poles, connectors and a transformer bank. A transformer bank is a collection of equipment that changes the level of power voltage flowing through the grid, decreasing the high-voltage energy to a level that is suitable for use by a home or business. You can see the transformers in the picture below.  

Upgrades like this create stronger circuits that serve hundreds of customers who live in the vicinity. 

You may see more of our crews in the coming months as part of our accelerated electric reliability projects in your area, including more tree trimming and infrastructure updates. All these projects are underway to improve your service and reliability for the short- and long term. 

Make sure to regularly check the Livonia community page to learn more about what’s going on in your neighborhood. You can also follow DTE on Facebook and Twitter for even more updates and information.
