SDG&E undertook a power line replacement of nine 12- and 69-kilovolt (kV) electric facilities spread throughout an approximate 880-square-mile area in eastern San Diego County, within and around the Cleveland National Forest (CNF). Power line replacement included fire-hardening, relocating, and undergrounding facilities along 145 miles.
To reduce costs and increase reliability for its ratepayers, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power needed to construct a new 500-kilovolt, 10- to 14-mile transmission line to deliver power from the Apex generating station to the Crystal switching station in Clark County, Nevada.
Southern California Edison’s (SCE) Devers to Palo Verde No. 2 (DPV2) Electrical Transmission Line covers more than 150 miles of alignment running from western Riverside County to the Colorado River in Arizona. The project connects several large-scale solar and conventional generation projects in eastern Riverside County to the power grid.
