Document Description
The Project would loop the existing overhead PG&E Brighton-Bellota 230 kV transmission line through an expanded PG&E Lockeford Substation and install a new overhead double-circuit 230 kV transmission line between PG&E Lockeford Substation and the proposed PG&E Thurman Switching Station at LEU’s existing Industrial Substation. LEU would construct the LEU Guild Substation, a new 230/60 kV substation, between its LEU Industrial Substation and the new PG&E Thurman Switching Station. At the LEU Guild Substation, the new PG&E 230 kV transmission line would terminate, and LEU transformers would step down the power from 230 kV to 60 kV to connect with the LEU Industrial Substation.
