SCE Colorado River and Red Bluff Substations
Inland Empire, California
In an effort to accommodate future growth and increased use of solar and renewable energy, Southern California Edison is currently constructing two new substations, the Colorado River and Red Bluff Substations in eastern Riverside County.
The Colorado River Substation is a new 500/220 kilovolt substation that is a part of an entirely new transmission line. The line will span 111 miles from Blythe to Palm Springs.
The Red Bluff Substation is intended to provide needed infrastructure for solar power generation projects that are currently in development. The new 500/220 kilovolt station is just south of Interstate 10 near Desert Center.
MTGL is currently providing several field technicians and special inspectors for both projects. Specifically, MTGL is providing materials testing and inspection for Soils, Concrete, Structural Steel and Masonry. Both projects began in early 2012 and are scheduled to be fully operational by December of 2013.
