Sacramento sees more transmission line added, upgrades made

Western energized two new transmission line segments of the Sacramento Area Voltage Support Project, May 21, readying the line just in time for California’s summer season operations.

The 230-kilovolt line from O’Banion Substation in Sutter County to the Sacramento Municipal Utility District’s Elverta Substation in Sacramento County came online at about 11 a.m., followed by the 230-kV line from O’Banion Substation to SMUD’s Natomas Substation in Sacramento County at about 2 p.m.

See full news release for photos and more information about the project.

    What impressed me most about this successful project was the environmental care which Western displayed. Not only land restoration and environmental monitoring but even the installation of bird flight diverters. Thanks for providing such necessary services with a human face too!

    I’m glad that there’s 2 new trasmissions lines.

    Is this a step in the right direction? I think so…we need more of this. Imagine all of the demand coming online with the new electric cars.
