    • Approximately 20 miles of Forest Service land

    • Approximately 50 miles of BLM land

    • Approximately 50 miles of private and other agencies’ land

  • Extensively reviewed by California Public Utilities Commission and the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, with substantial input from other agencies

    • Four-year regulatory review process

    • 43 public hearings

    • 11,000 page EIR – largest in California history

  • Regulatory approval of Southern Route

    • CPUC – December 18, 2008

    • BLM – January 20, 2009

  • Project cost -- $1.883 billion

Additional infrastructure needed

Additional Infrastructure Needed

Recent studies indicate that the San Diego – Imperial Valley – Baja Mexico Mega-Region has the potential to become a global showcase for clean energy with a potential of nearly 12,000 MW of renewable electricity

Imperial Valley renewable energy resources potential:

Solar Energy – 6,550 megawatts

Wind Energy – 3,495 megawatts including Baja California

Sources: RETI Phase 2A Draft Resource Report

Geothermal Energy – 2,000 megawatts

Ctpg who we are

CTPG: Who We Are

  • A coalition comprised of all the entities within California responsible for transmission planning for the interstate grid.

  • Collaboration supplements the role that each California Balancing Authority has for planning to meet the needs of their service territory.

  • The CTPG:

    • Publicly Owned Utilities: IID, TID, SMUD and LADWP

    • California ISO

    • Investor Owned Utilities: PG&E, SCE, and SDG&E

    • Other planning organizations: WAPA, TANC, and SCPPA


Study objectives for 2010

Study Objectives for 2010

Complete a statewide conceptual transmission plan by July 2010 and vet results with stakeholders

Conceptual plan will include multiple scenarios and will likely identify “least regrets” transmission applicable to all scenarios

Goal is to have “least regrets” projects move forward to state siting and approval processes in early 2011

Remaining 33% RPS transmission needs subject to further study in 2011
