Devers to Colorado River

The Devers to Colorado River Project is a 111-mile, 500-kV transmission line that originates at the Devers substation near Palm Springs, California and terminates at the new 500/230 kV Colorado substation near Blythe, California. The project is sponsored by Southern California Edison.  This project was originally proposed to run from Devers to the Palo Verde substation in Arizona (DPV2). It was scaled back and involves only the California project segments at this time.  There are two segments: First, the 111 mile Devers to Colorado River project and second, the 42 mile Devers to Valley substation (near Menifee, California) project.  The new lines will increase transfer capability between eastern California, Arizona and Southern California and allow for increased integration of renewable energy sources.  The project cost $860m when completed in May 2013.
