Red Bluff Substation Project

Delivering More Solar Power For Southern California

We’re committed to more renewable power for California’s future, and the Red Bluff Substation Project near Desert Center, in eastern Riverside County, is designed to help. It’s positioned in an area defined by state and federal agencies as rich in solar-energy resources, and where several renewable-power generation projects are in development. The Red Bluff Substation Project will help us connect First Solar’s Desert Sunlight Solar Farm, and future renewable-power projects in the area, to our transmission grid.
