Proposed Action

LADWP is proposing the Barren Ridge Renewable Transmission Project (BRRPT) to access clean, renewable energy resources in the Tehachapi Mountain and Mojave Desert areas of Southern California. The project is in Kern and Los Angeles Counties, and is approximately 75 miles in length from Barren Ridge Switching Station to Rinaldi Substation and 12 miles in length from Castaic Power Plant to the proposed Haskell Switching Station. The project will consist of:

1.Construction of a 230 kilovolt (kV) transmission line from the LADWP Barren Ridge Switching Station to Haskell Canyon on double-circuit structures (involving approximately 13 miles of National Forest System lands and 4 miles of Bureau of Land Management (BLM) managed public lands)

2.Addition of a 230 kV circuit on the existing double-circuit structures from Haskell Canyon to the Castaic Power Plant (involving approximately 4 miles of National Forest System lands and 300 feet of BLM managed public lands)

3.Upgrade the existing Barren Ridge – Rinaldi 230 kV transmission line with larger capacity conductors between the Barren Ridge Switching Station to Rinaldi Substation (involving approximately 13 miles of National Forest System lands and 4 miles of BLM managed public lands)

4.Construction of a new electrical switching station at Haskell Canyon.

5.Expansion of the existing Barren Ridge Switching Station.
