Norwalk's Third Taxing District is looking bright with the completion of a substation at 6 Fitch Street.

Jim Smith, General Manager of the Third Taxing District said, "We are being fed off the transmission system and opposed to from CL & P distribution system, so it's that much more reliable."

The Third Taxing District Electric Department, which serves over three thousand customers in East Norwalk, began work on the substation in July. Construction took less than 33 months and came in under budget but the origins of the plan date back to 2008.

Smith said, "The foresite and the vision of the Commission back in 2008 and 2009 was really the driving force behind this project.

Commissioner David Brown, who first brought up the idea of a new substation in 2008 said in a statement over the phone, "We invested in the future and it's really going to pay off for customers in East Norwalk."

According to Smith, the new substation is more reliable and more cost effective.

Smith said, "Savings for our rate payers. We plan on generating somewhere between a half to three-quarters of a million dollars in savings from the substation in terms of the money we will not pay CL & P."
