- South Loop Reconfigure Project
- Silicon Valley Power (SVP) is proposing to construct approximately 3.5 miles of new 60 kilovolt (kV) overhead transmission line within the northeastern area of the City of Santa Clara. SVP’s primary objective of the SVP South Loop Reconfigure Project (proposed project) is to shift the electrical load demand that is currently being seen on the South Loop Circuit to the East Loop Circuit. The new power line would begin at the Kifer Substation, located near the corner of Central Expressway and Lafayette Streets, and would continue to the De La Cruz Substation, which is located on Mathew Street. The transmission line would also be routed to several other existing substations located along or near the transmission line corridor, including Fiberglass, Walsh, and Mathew Substations. The majority of the new 60 kV transmission line would be constructed along the following city streets: Lafayette Street, Mathew Street, Martin Avenue and De La Cruz Boulevard. Approximately 3 miles of the proposed route would be located in areas where existing power lines do not currently exist. The remaining segments of the Proposed Project would be along routes that have existing distribution power lines and/or telecommunication lines. Construction is estimated to take approximately 6 months and be completed by the end of 2020.
