The City is growing and Anaheim Public Utilities is planning ahead for additional power demand. This will maintain the most reliable electric service for the community. The new substation will be built adjacent to the Garden Walk and will aesthetically blend into the area.
The new substation will be built with the use of Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS) technology allowing the construction to be 30% smaller than a traditional substation. Features include: two transformers, 12kV switchgear, solar panels on the roof and energy storage capability.
