A Virtual Tour of Avista’s Downtown (Steam Plant Alley) Power Substation
October 27 @ 5:30 pm - 6:15 pm
IEEE Spokane is pleased to announce our 2021 Fall Kickoff Event — a virtual tour of the historic ‘Steam Plant Alley’ 115kV WWP/Avista power substation, which has served the critical functions of Spokane’s urban downtown core for nearly 50 years. This rare opportunity is a great last chance for a complete insiders’ look: the substation’s replacement nearby is already underway! Although a pioneering plant, this facility is noted for its record of reliability, with customer outages in the area counted in merely “minutes per decade”. The 16-minute virtual tour will take you through all aspects of the historic substation and its equipment, and will be followed by a question and answer period, hosted by Avista’s Sara Koeff.
