Document Description
PG&E is proposing to construct the Cressey-Gallo 115 kV Power Line Project to improve transmission system reliability for customers in north-central Merced County, CA. The project consists of constructing a new 14.4-mile 115 kV power line between Cressey and Gallo Substations to form a power line loop with two other area substations (Livingston and Atwater) to avoid customer service interruptions from single-line outages in this area. The project includes constructing a new, 14.4-mile, single-circuit 115 kV power line interconnecting Cressey Substation and Gallo Substation; upgrading the bus configurations at Cressey Substation and replacing the existing radial power line transition into the substation within the existing substation property; and expanding Gallo Substation to add switchgear and upgrade the bus configurations.
