Riverside Transmission Reliability Project
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Document Description
In order to meet increased electrical demand associated with existing customers and the projected growth within the Riverside Public Utilities (RPU) service area, expansion in electrical energy delivery capacity and increased transmission capacity are required. In order to provide the additional capacity and to maintain system reliability, transmission line and substation improvements are necessary. In November 2004, the Riverside Board of Public Utilities authorized RPU to enter an agreement with Southern California Edison (SCE) for completion of a System Impact Study and a Facilities Study. The results of these studies indicate the need for construction of a new double circuit 230 kV transmission line into Riverside. In order to provide additional electrical power into the City, two new substations would also be needed.
