Riverside Transmission Reliability Project (RTRP)
Riverside Public Utilities (RPU) is proposing the Riverside Transmission Reliability Project (RTRP), which will provide needed energy resources to the city, while improving service reliability for all our customers. See a list of RTRP meeting summaries, documents and links.
About the Project
The proposed RTRP would include the construction of a new double-circuit 230-kilovolt (kV) transmission line, a new 230/69 kV electrical substation, and new 69 kV subtransmission lines. The new 230 kV transmission line would connect the proposed substation, located on RPU-owned land near the northeast corner of Wilderness Avenue and Ed Perkic Street, to existing 230 kV transmission lines owned by SCE. Six new 69 kV subtransmission lines would also connect the proposed substation to RPU's electrical system.
The planned upgrades to our energy delivery system will eliminate obsolete equipment, help modernize our local energy delivery infrastructure, and help increase the energy efficiency and reliability of Riverside’s vibrant southwestern neighborhoods.
