Benefits

The Morgan Hill/Watsonville Area Reinforcement Project will provide the following benefits to Morgan Hill, Gilroy, Watsonville and surrounding communities:


Reliability

These improvements help reduce the risk of local area customer power outages by providing the system with greater flexibility and independence to adapt to energy demand in real time.


Renewable Energy

Upgrades to electric infrastructure help facilitate the interconnection of electricity generated from the sun and wind to the grid, supporting California’s law to have 50% of the state’s energy come from renewable sources by 2030.


Economic vitality

Investments in the grid will allow us to continue to provide a highly reliable and stable electricity source that meets the needs of customers in the greater Morgan Hill, Gilroy, and Watsonville areas, and Silicon Valley’s leading firms and businesses.
