substations would be built – one adjacent to the existing COTP transmission line northwest of Arbuckle and another adjacent to the O’Banion substation. The Segment 1 Alternative Study Area is approximately nine miles (14.149 km) long and would provide an alternate north-to-south route for the Northern Corridor Study Area. It would be located immediately west of the existing O’Banion substation. Instead of following Western’s existing 230 kV Olinda-O’Banion and Keswick-O’Banion double-circuit transmission lines to the O’Banion substation, this segment would extend south, at a location approximately 30 miles (48.3 km) from the Maxwell Series Compensation substation, and then continue east to connect to the O’Banion substation. The new segment would also be located further away from the Sutter National Wildlife Refuge. PG&E holds public meetings for Northern San Joaquin Power Connect project Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) has held public meetings for its Northern San Joaquin Power Connect project. The proposed project will bring new transmission sources to the northern area of San Joaquin County and will serve more than 50,000 households and businesses in the Stockton, Lodi, Lockeford, Victor, Acampo and Thornton communities. The proposed project consists of the construction of new 230 kV high- capacity transmission lines to connect PG&E’s existing Lockeford substation that is east of Lodi, and the 8 Mile substation that is just north of Stockton, to the Lodi Electric Utility’s Industrial substation in Lodi; as well as upgrades to these substations. The developer is planning to submit its application with California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) by late- 2017 or early-2018. JCP&L hosts public meeting for Montville- Whippany Transmission Reinforcement Project Jersey Central Power & Light (JCP&L), a subsidiary of FirstEnergy Corporation, hosted a public meeting for the Montville-Whippany Transmission Reinforcement Project in Montville, New Jersey on December 8, 2015. This project involves construction of a 7 mile (11.27 km), 230 kV line in Morris County through parts of East Hanover, Parsippany and Montville, to enhance service reliability, add redundancy to JCP&L’s system, and meet the growing demand for electricity in the region. The project is part of the ‘Energizing the Future’ initiative of FirstEnergy. SCC Virginia to host public meetings for Haymarket 230 kV Line and Substation Project The State Corporation Commission (SCC) of Virginia has scheduled public meetings in February and March 2016 for the Haymarket 230 kV Line and Substation Project proposed by Dominion Virginia Power.

This will also strengthen electric reliability for the local area by providing a new source of power in the heart of the growth area. Under the project, the developer has proposed to build a new substation west of Haymarket town and an approximately 5.1 mile (8.2 km), 230

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
