12:28 ET Neighbourhood friendly cable injection program wins Alectra an Underground Environmental Stewardship Award

Dec 15, 2022

News provided by Share this article Share this article MISSISSAUGA, ON, Dec. 15, 2022 /CNW/ - Novinium, a full-service underground power expert that is part of the Southwire family of companies, awarded Alectra with the 2021 'Underground Environmental Stewardship Award' (ESA). For the third time in a row, Alectra earned the ESA award for its industry-leading implementation of an innovative and cost-effective cable rejuvenation process. Ben Schneider, Novinium/Southwire’s Vice President of Utility Services and Brian Bentz Brian Bentz, President and CEO, Alectra Inc. (CNW Group/Alectra Inc) Cable rejuvenation is a process that repairs, protects, and extends the life of underground electrical cables – without digging them up – by injecting a silicone-based fluid into the cable. Cable rejuvenation can extend the life of an aging cable up to 20 years and is much less disruptive than a full replacement. To date, Alectra has rejuvenated 946 km of underground cable, mitigating 12,302 tonnes of CO2. Alectra aims to achieve net-zero CO2 emissions by 2050, and sustainable technologies like cable rejuvenation are important contributors to achieving that goal. "Delivering safe and reliable electricity to our customers is our top priority," said Brian Bentz, President and CEO, Alectra Inc. "We look forward to continuing our partnership with Novinium as we implement innovative, cost-effective technologies to sustainably renew assets and improve service reliability." "I'm thrilled to present Alectra with this environmental stewardship award; it's a true pleasure to serve such a forward-looking utility that approaches capital investment and environmental consideration in the way they do", said Ben Schneider, Novinium/Southwire's Vice President of Utility Services. Alectra is investing to strengthen and modernize its distribution grid to make it more resilient, reliable, and secure, while incorporating the advanced technologies necessary for the growing integration of distributed energy resources. Each year Alectra invests nearly $300 million in capital improvements – approximately $1 million per day to renew aging equipment and install new infrastructure to handle growing demand. Continued capital investments in grid modernization are essential to maintain system reliability and make the changes necessary to build the utility of the future. Visit to learn more.
