Document Description
The Turlock Irrigation District (TID), a public entity, plans to purchase electric facilities within 225 square miles of western Stanislaus County from Pacific Gas & Electric Corporation (PG&E), a regulated utility. The negotiated purchase includes approximately 200 linear miles of distribution facilities, all the equipment at the Patterson Substation, the distribution equipment within the Salado Substation, 0.25 miles of 60 kV transmission line into the Patterson Substation, and eventually, a 1.1-mile 60 kV transmission tap line to Patterson Frozen Foods. The transfer agreement also includes the lease of the land at the Patterson Substation and a portion of the Salado Substation property. The proposed project also includes the physical changes needed for TID to operate the acquired facilities independent of the PG&E system and serve the customers within the zone, including installing severance facilities at eight points in the distribution system along the boundaries of the new TID Westside service zone. TID also plans to acquire from PG&E the right to serve the electricity in the South Short Zone, an area near Don Pedro Reservoir that presently contains limited distribution facilities and would not require any severance construction.
