Yorba Substation's 12kV switchgear is over 40 years old and exceeds the normal life expectancy of this equipment. This Project is part of Electric Utilities Substation Equipment Replacement Program which replaces old equipment based on age, interrupting capability and maintenance issues. Replacing the existing switchgear with new equipment on an adjacent property will improve electric reliability and reduces maintenance costs.
