Document Description
The proposed Pala Substation would expand and replace the existing 43-year old substation with newer and more reliable equipment and would eliminate a 19 percent overload on the existing single bank substation. The proposed substation at full buildout is planned to be 56 MVA with two 28 MVA transformers and eight 12 kV (kilovolt) circuits. A 10-foot high wall will enclose the substation area (approximately 36,000 square feet) and landscaping will be established from the beginning of the project. Construction is scheduled to begin in mid-2001 with an in-service date of March 2002.
