Switchgear and other equipment on this flatcar,. which arrived
July 10, will bring more electricity to South Freeport consumers.
When completed, a new Substation "D" will distribute 4, 160 volts-instead
of the present 2,400 volts, thereby cutting down "line loss"
and enabling electric appliances to perform better.
Electric Dept. linemen unloaded" the materials themselves, at a
saving to the village. After a transformer (made to specifications)
arrives, linemen will assemble the substation, which will be con-nected
to the Power Plant via a high-tension line along South Ocean
Ave. to Front St. The substation there will be beautifully landscaped
with lawns, shrubbery and ornamental trees.

NEW FAST, ACCURATE DEVICE TESTS METERS
An electric eye is testing watthour meters for the Freeport Elec-tric
Dept0 since the arrival of a new States test table with automatic
controlSo In the picture, Robert Grogan, supervisor of electrical
services ( seated) gives instructions to an assistant, Ivan Asher0
Formerly an operator had to start the meter's revolving disc in
accurate timing with a "rotating standard", count tha revolutions and
stop everything at the proper memento Ofter he needed to repeat all
this a few times for accuracy,, But now a photoelectric beam of light,
focused on the meter's revolving disc, shines through ahole each time
the hole spins past a sensitized cello This gives precision as well as
speed to the testing,, , . .
Mr0 Grogan says that each meter is tested first at 10 per cent of
capacity and then 100 per cent0 The meter's holder can be movedfor-ward
or back for convenient inspection,,
Addition of this device to the tester already in use will enable two
men to make testa at the same time0 This provides increased eff i -
ceincy needed to test the more than 12,000 Freeport meters period-ically
after they are installed, as well as when each comes from the
factory and just before it goes into service. The Public Service Com-mission
requires Mr0 Grogan or an assistant to test each .business
meter every one to four years, according to its kilowatts-amperes,
and .systematically do the same for each residential meter every eight
year So . ... . • ... . . ; . . • . . : . :.. :.
Each test table contains, a master meter which the PSC, tests for
accuracy at least every three months,,
