Southern California Edison Tehachapi Renewable Transmission Project

Kern, Los Angeles and San Bernardino Counties, CA

Southern California Edison’s (SCE) Tehachapi Renewable Transmission Project (TRTP) connects renewable wind energy generated in the Tehachapi Wind Resource Area (TWRA) to the existing power grid in the Los Angeles basin. A significant barrier to tapping into this renewable energy source is a lack of adequate high-voltage transmission capacity to connect to the existing transmission lines that are located miles away from the TWRA. To address this need, SCE proposed TRTP to build the transmission capacity necessary.
