Document Description
Project transmission system is an integral part of the transmission grid in northern California. Western operates and maintains its system according to Western Electricity Coordinating Council (WECC) reliability standards. Growth in the greater Sacramento area and power imported from generation outside the region have increased demand on the interconnected electric transmission system, leading to transmission system overloads and a reduction in power system reliability and security. Western has selected proposed action option B as the preferred alternative for the SVS EIS. Proposed action option B would: - Provide the highest degree of security and reliability for voltage support - Avoid displacement of residences - Produce relatively low environmental impacts.
