As a PG&E contractor through QUES Utility Engi9neering Services I helped plan Northern California distribution grid for multiple cities, I did the initial planning for 82 overhead distribution projects, and created and edited the construction drawings for another 67 projects. Projects to include:
- General Pole Replacement and Maintenance of Degrading Distribution over head Poles, Improving the Reliability of the Distribution Grid
- Pole Replacement in the Recent fire areas in Northern California
- The separation and removal of Banked Transformer Configuration
Collect field data on over head distribution poles, estimate conductor gauge and length, determine accessibility to line trucks based on poles location, use PG&E environmental data base to determine if environmental services are needed, calculate pole loading characteristics through a Computer Based PG&E calculation tool, and communicate specific data to PGF&E construction crew and over sight engineer. As the contract came to a close I also created and edited auto CAD approximately 67 construction drawings.
