Notice of Proposed PG&E Construction Project

Posted by: thepinetree on 11/11/2021 05:39 PM
San Francisco, CA...Proposed Project: Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) is proposing to replace outdated copper conductors (wires) and their supporting structures within an approximately 35-mile utility corridor between PG&E’s Stanislaus Powerhouse in Tuolumne County and Dodds Road in Stanislaus County. PG&E is making a system-wide effort to replace old copper conductor within its transmission system; replacing it with new conductor will improve reliability for almost 75,000 residences and businesses in the region. At the same time, replacing the lines will reduce wildfire risk in this largely tier-two fire hazard area and facilitate delivery of hydroelectric power from the Stanislaus River. Most of this corridor contains two parallel 115 kV power lines, one double-circuit and one single-circuit, which extend from the powerhouse through Calaveras County and eventually split from each other in Stanislaus County north of Oakdale. To minimize customer electric service outages during construction, the double-circuit line will become a single-circuit line and the single-circuit line will become a double-circuit line where the lines run parallel to each other. The project will include the replacement of approximately 393 existing lattice steel towers and 19 steel poles with approximately 391 lattice steel towers and 19 tubular steel poles. Existing structures ranging from 50 to 130 feet tall will be replaced with new structures approximately between 72 and 145 feet tall. As with the existing lines, marker balls will be installed on some wires to comply with Federal Aviation Administration requirements, and non-intrusive safety lighting may be added to taller structures. The taller structures are needed to comply with CPUC General Order 95 ground-to-conductor clearance requirements while ensuring proper separation of consolidated circuits and accommodating hilly topography.
