USA, California: Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) is looking to build a new 70 kV transmission line through Paso Robles, California, along with a new substation.
As part of the proposed project, PG&E would perform several upgrades including building additional components at the Estrella Substation site in order to connect the new substation to the new transmission line and the local power grid, reports T&D World.
The project would also involve connecting the existing Morro Bay-Gates 230 kV transmission line and existing 70 kV San Miguel-Paso Robles transmission line to the Estrella Substation. In addition, the utility will also upgrade a portion of the San Miguel-Paso Robles 70 kV transmission line and make reliability upgrades to the existing Templeton, San Miguel and Paso Robles substations.
These upgrades would improve power reliability and reduce the risk of power outages for almost 47,000 electric customers in Paso Robles, San Miguel, Templeton, Creston, Atascadero and Santa Margarita.
