Master Substation
On average Fermilab draws 45 megawatts of power, delivered to two laboratory-operated substations at 345,000 volts. With the support of the Department of Energy and in collaboration with commercial suppliers, Fermilab has instituted energy conservation projects, including the development and use of superconducting magnets. Recent improvements will save the laboratory several hundred thousand dollars every year.
