Long Beach Update

As of 4:20 a.m. today, we are in the process of reconnecting customers to the network who have been on generator power.

Affected customers may experience temporary outages during this process. We thank customers for their patience as we work to restore them to the network as safely and efficiently as possible. 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.

We will reopen our distribution center at 925 Locust at 8 a.m. today to distribute food, ice and water. 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 >

Project Details

  • A new 115/33kV substation
  • Upgrades to both the existing Carodean Substation (located on Two Mile Road and Lear Avenue) and the Hi Desert Substation (located near Dortin Place next to Highway 62).
  • Overbuilding* existing 33kV lines between these two substations and the new Leatherneck Substation with new 115kV sub-transmission lines (approximately 9 miles in length), to be supported with a combination of new lightweight and tubular steel poles.

*Overbuilding means installing a new circuit above existing facilities. It may require replacing existing poles with new poles along the same pole route.
