Document Description
The proposed substation would be located on the east side of Garfield Avenue, south of Louie Court in the city of El Cajon in eastern San Diego County. The proposed site combines the existing 12/4 kilovolt (kV) Garfield substation site with an adjacent residential parcel north of the substation at 125 Garfield Avenue. The proposed project is planned to be a 69/12 kV, 60 megavolt ampere (MVA) distribution substation with the loop-in of the existing 69 kV transmission line. Substation equipment will be low profile with a maximum height of 13 feet and be enclosed by a perimeter wall. The existing 69 kV tie line will be routed underground into the substation using one double circuit steel cable pole. The cable pole will replace the existing wood poles on the south side of the substation. Underground routes to and from the new pole will be in the existing transmission corridor and substation. The distribution circuits will extend underground out to Garfield Avenue/Seventh Drive transition to overhead, and tie into the existing circuitry. Outside the perimeter wall , the site will be landscaped to further screen views of the wall and substation. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2000 with an in-service date of June 2001.
