In anticipation of the Detroit Public Lighting Department (PLD) ceasing to provide electric power to customers starting in approximately 2020, the City granted permission to PLD customers, among them Wayne State University, to become DTE customers. In 2014, Wayne State University (WSU) and Detroit Edison (DTE) began planning for the conversion of the University’s electrical service from PLD to DTE. In 2015, MEP firm, Peter Basso Associates, began providing electrical engineering consulting services to WSU as it started the intricate process of converting its electrical service from PLD to DTE at 48 campus buildings.
Consulting services provided by PBA’s electrical engineers have included 1) evaluating and assisting in developing a location for DTE’s or WSU’s outdoor equipment, 2) evaluating the capacity size of the outdoor equipment 3) evaluating if the existing main electrical equipment inside the building would remain or if it should be replaced, 4) evaluating if there was the potential to locate the new DTE or WSU’s equipment inside the existing PLD electrical vault, and 5) evaluating the need for temporary power required during power shutdown when converting from PLD to DTE service.
