CPUC Scoping Meeting: SCE’s Riverside Transmission Reliability Project

By City of Eastvale 

On April 15, 2015, Southern California Edison (SCE) filed an application (A.15-04-013) with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity (CPCN) to construct and operate the 230-kV transmission line and 230-kV substation components of the Riverside Transmission Reliability Project (RTRP).

This project will not directly impact Eastvale but the proposed lines will be an aesthetic visible to our city.
