PG&E Substation Delayed
The California Independent System Operator, which is responsible for operating and managing California’s energy grid, has informed Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) that it is reassessing projects throughout California, including its proposed South County Power Connect project, a PG&E spokesperson said Monday.
“Based on the California Independent System Operator’s (CAISO) decision to reassess previously approved projects, including South County Power Connect, we will be postponing updates on our ongoing studies, originally planned for early this year, until the CAISO has finished its evaluation,” Nicole Liebelt said in an email.
“We are committed to providing safe and reliable energy to our customers in southern Santa Clara County and will continue to work with the CAISO to determine the best solution for ensuring long-term reliability in the area. We understand the community is very interested in this project, and we will continue to keep the community informed as we receive new information,” she added.
