More than 700 ft of ductbank were installed in San Francisco’s Financial District. New switchgear enclosures (with circuit breaker, meter, etc.) and several conduit raceways were constructed to upgrade two existing substations and eight existing circuit breakers were removed, refurbished, and reinstalled at the MUNI Downtown Substation.
