SCE is building a new substation to serve the communities of Lakeview and Nuevo as well as adjacent unincorporated areas of Riverside County. The Nuevo substation, which currently provides power to the area, has reached its full operating capacity and will be unable to keep up with the area’s growing demand for electricity. The project will strengthen the area’s electricity grid and improve reliability to help meet forecasted electrical demand.
Our response to COVID-19
We’ve made some changes due to COVID-19, including suspending service disconnections for residential and small business customers for nonpayment, and only continuing critical work needed to protect public safety and reduce the risk of wildfires.
