South County Power Connect
South County Power Connect will serve our 43,000 electric customers in Morgan Hill, Gilroy and southern Santa Clara County. This map provides an overview of the project components and project study area, including the eight potential substation sites and refined transmission line corridors identified by the project team.
- Construct a new substation
- Connect Morgan Hill-Llagas 115 kV line into the new substation
- Connect one of the Metcalf-Moss Landing 230 kV lines into the new substation
- Reconductor the 115 kV line from the new substation to the existing Morgan Hill Substation
