New transmission line energized in San Diego

USA, California: San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) has energized a new electric transmission line built in north-central San Diego to enhance overall reliability of electricity supply and support the growing demand for energy in the region.

The new 230 kV Sycamore-Peñasquitos transmission line acts as a highway, adding a new pathway to the regional power grid and creating an additional means for energy to reach customers in Mira Mesa, Scripps Ranch and the city of Poway, reports T&D World.

“This vital infrastructure will improve California’s power grid and ensure our region remains resilient and prepared for the increasing amount of renewable energy we continue to deliver,” said David Geier, senior vice president of electric operations for SDG&E.
