Village of Paw Paw Electrical System Asset Management Plan
The Village of Paw Paw Electrical System Asset Management Plan and Reliability Study looks at creating a model of the Village's existing electrical system and utilizing that model to study and analyze a variety of issues. The project also incorporates financial analysis of the Village's revenue structure, rates, and future funding. This project is being implemented to allow the Village to best manage their assets and predict needs for future growth. To date, the project has completed the collection of GIS data, pole testing, and draft studies which include a System Study & Six Year Plan, Fusing Coordination Study, and Arc-Flash Assessment Study. The final phase of the project will focus on financial aspects of managing the system. This phase encompasses a cost of Service Study, Unbundling Study, Financial Projection and a One Year Rate Design.
