Document Description
Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E), in its California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) application (A.09-11-016), filed on November 23, 2009, seeks a Permit to Construct the Hollister 115 kV Power Line Reconductoring Project (Proposed Project). PG&E, which currently operates the existing 115 kV overhead electric power line system in Monterey and San Benito Counties, requests to replace structures (e.g., towers and poles) and reconductor the Hollister Tower and Hollister Pole Segments, approximately seven and nine miles long, respectively. The majority of the proposed alignment would be located in an existing PG&E easement on private property; an approximately 1.3-mile section of the 115kV Hollister Pole Segment would be relocated out of the San Benito River floodplain (the existing river alignment) to a new river crossing with structure located on dry banks above the river (the Proposed River Crossing) while the existing distribution and topped poles would remain to serve local users.
