Document Description
Southern California Edison (SCE), in its California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) application (A.08-05-039), filed on May 30, 2008, seeks a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity (CPCN) for the San Joaquin Cross Valley Loop Transmission Line Project (Proposed Project), which includes the following major elements: - Replacement of approximately 1.1 miles of two sets of single circuit 220 kV transmission line with a single double circuit transmission line to be constructed on the western side of SCE's existing right of way (ROW) immediately north of the Rector substation; - Construction of an approximately 18.5 mile-long, double circuit transmission line that would loop the existing Big Creek 3-Springville 220 kV transmission line into the Rector Substation. The first 1.1 miles of the new transmission line would be constructed on the eastern side of SCE's existing ROW adjacent to the new 1.1 miles of double circuit line described above; - Installation of electrical equipment and substation supporting structures for the transmission lines, protective relays, and a mechanical and electrical equipment room (MEER) at the Rector Substation to accommodate the transmission lines; and - Removal of wave traps and line tuners and installation of additional protective relays at Rector Substation, Springville Substation, Vestal Substation, and Big Creek 3 Substation. The objective of the Proposed Project is to build electrical facilities necessary to maintain safe and reliable electric service to customers, and serve the forecasted electrical demand in the southeastern portion of the San Joaquin Valley.
