SCE files to expand wind farm project  

Southern California Edison on Friday applied to the California Public Utilities Commission and the U.S. Forest Service for authorization to construct Segments 4-11 of the Tehachapi Renewable Transmission Project.

The project – a series of new and upgraded high-voltage electric transmission lines – will deliver electricity from proposed new wind farms in the Tehachapi Wind Resource Area to SCE customers and the California transmission grid.

The Tehachapi project includes a series of upgrade and new high-voltage electric transmission lines and substations to bring electricity from new wind farms in eastern Kern County to the L.A. basin.

These wind farms are in varying stages of planning and construction. The project would cost about $1.8 billion. If completed in 2013 as proposed, it would be capable of carrying 4,500 megawatts of electricity, enough for nearly 3 million homes at peak output.
