The Valley-Ivyglen Project will help maintain reliability for current and projected demand for electricity in southwestern Riverside County.
Lake Elsinore, Menifee, Perris, and unincorporated Riverside County
- Subtransmission lines: Construction of approximately 25 miles of new 115 kilovolt subtransmission lines between SCE’s Valley Substation in Menifee and Ivyglen Substation in unincorporated Riverside County.
- Substation upgrades: New electrical facilities at the existing Fogarty Substation, which will allow the substation to be fully operational.
- Telecommunications: Installation of approximately 25 miles of fiber optic telecommunication lines between Valley Substation and Ivyglen Substation.
A description of the nearby Alberhill Project is located on SCE’s Alberhill webpage.
We are proposing to modify the Valley-Ivyglen Subtransmission Line and Fogarty Substation Project that was approved by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) in 2010. Based on our final engineering review and new/changed circumstances, we determined that modifications to the construction and design of the Approved Project were needed.
Our proposed modifications to the Valley-Ivyglen subtransmission line, Fogarty Substation, and the telecommunications system will allow us to account for topography constraints, facilitate efficient construction and maintenance, reduce the number of pole replacements, and minimize environmental impacts.
The Amended Petition For Modification (PFM) includes the following elements:
- Valley-Ivyglen 115-kV Subtransmission Line Design Modifications
- Valley-Ivyglen 115-kV Subtransmission Line Construction Modifications
- Telecommunications System Modifications
