Exelon Substation Security Upgrades

For more than 100 years, Commonwealth Edison (ComEd, a unit of Exelon Corporation) has been the primary electric delivery services company for Northern Illinois, providing electric service to more than 3.8 Million customers.  Pursuant to 18 CFR 40, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission order number 802, Physical Security Reliability Standard and in compliance with North American Electric Reliability Corporation CIP 014-1, ComEd has committed to continued safety, security, and reliability of its power distribution grid.

David Mason + Associates provided civil engineering design services for the substation security upgrades. Numerous design considerations were taken into account including the overall security posture of the substation; the equipment in the station; the present and future layout of the site, as well as specific environmental, state, and local guidelines and requirements.
