Western Massachusetts Electric Company (WMECo) successfully energized the new Agawam-West Springfield Circuit Separation Project in late April 2011. This project improves the system reliability by placing each circuit on its own set of structures where, previously, two high-voltage circuits occupied the same towers between the Agawam and West Springfield substations.
