Long Beach Update

As of 4:30 a.m. Saturday, we have restored service to approximately 190 of the 260 customers that were without service by connecting generators. We are continuing to place generators in areas that do not have power and expect to have all customers restored to service by Saturday afternoon. SCE will re-open its distribution center at Cesar Chavez community center at 8 a.m. Saturday to distribute ice and water. There are currently 10 generators in place serving businesses and residents. As the underground network system is restored, we will transition these customers off the generators. When this happens, they will experience a short power outage, which could last up to 45 minutes. We encourage customers in Long Beach to make every effort to conserve use of electricity as we continue to return the system to its full operational capacity. The safety of the public and our crews remain our highest priority. We thank the city of Long Beach for its cooperation and for the safety efforts of first responders in the Long Beach Fire and Police departments. Get the latest update >

Devers – Palo Verde #2 Project

Delivering Solar Power to You

We’re committed to more renewable power for California’s future. Because wind and solar power generating stations are typically remote, added infrastructure is needed to transport power over long distances to the areas where many of us live and work.

The Devers‐Palo Verde No. 2 Project (DPV2) will serve as a vital transmission highway for connecting several large-scale solar and conventional generation projects being developed in eastern Riverside County to the power grid.

Project Details

  • Construction of the new 500/220 kV Colorado River Substation near Blythe.
  • Construction of a new 111-mile Devers-Colorado River 500 kV transmission line between our Devers Substation near Palm Springs and the new Colorado River Substation. This line would be parallel to the existing Devers-Palo Verde transmission line.
  • Construction of a new 42-mile Devers-Valley No 2. 500 kV transmission line between Devers Substation and our Valley Substation in Menifee. This line would be parallel to the existing Devers-Valley transmission line.

Status

The project is completed and operational.
