Pioneering a solution – a Connect21 video

Pioneer Valley is the Massachusetts portion of the Connecticut River Valley, comprising three counties: Franklin, Hampshire, and Hampden. Hampden is home for a brand new substation that has improved electricity reliability for more than 6,500 customers in the Pioneer Valley.

On this 5th stop of our Connect21 video series, tour the substation with Massachusetts President Marcy Reed, and hear what former Massachusetts Senator Gail Canderas and local officials have to say about the difference upgraded infrastructure is making, particularly during storms.


Our video series started with an overview of Connect21 and includes footage of the important infrastructure projects we are working on in each of our jurisdictions. Visit here to watch any you’ve missed. Here are a few more projects you can look forward to learning about:

  • Clarkson University’s micro grid project in Upstate New York
  • Worcester’s Smart Energy Solutions project in Massachusetts
  • Rhode Island’s Aquidneck Island reliability project
  • Grid Modernization in Massachusetts

We’ll feature a new video around every two weeks, so be sure to check back often. We hope you’ll give us your feedback in the comments section below as you take the series’ tour. The future of energy belongs to all of us, and we want to hear your voice.
