The Worcester EcoTarium has been producing its own power since 1971. Due to safety and financial reasons, the need to connect to the public grid has arisen. By calculating current and future costs for both above and below ground transmission wires, we were able to recommend an underground connection. Connecting underground best fits the needs of the EcoTarium because having the backup is necessary, and the rebate potential will help alleviate any capital costs.
