The CSU campus will undergo a series of updates to the switchgear, a vital part of
the electrical system that powers the campus. This will require several buildings
on campus to be shut down at various points. In order to minimize the disruption caused
by these shutdowns, they will be done in sections and staff from each building will
be reassigned to different locations on campus.
Switchgear is a vital part of the overall electrical system on campus. It is the combination
of electrical disconnect switches, fuses or circuit breakers used to control, protect
and isolate electrical equipment.
The switchgear is a vital component of maintaining a stable and consistent electrical
supply. Campus buildings require a great deal of energy to operate, from lights to
computers to heating and air conditioning to sound equipment, etc. The current switchgear
system at CSU is out of date, and the update is necessary to ensure that our electrical
supply is stable in the future.
