Southern California Edison, Lotus Infrastructure Partners to Build California Transmission Project


Southern California Edison and Lotus Infrastructure Partners have been chosen by the California Independent System Operator (CAISO) to develop, permit, own, operate and maintain new transmission infrastructure meant to deliver energy from renewable sources to Southern California. 

The companies will build a 30-mile high-voltage transmission line from the Serrano Substation in Orange County to a substation in the vicinity of the retired San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS).

“Lotus has been developing transmission assets for almost 20 years, including our most recent high-voltage transmission project in the Desert Southwest region, Ten West Link,” says Himanshu Saxena, chairman and CEO of Lotus. 

“It is clear that there can be no energy transition without energy transmission. Lotus is proud to partner with the CAISO, SCE and the local communities to move this very important project forward and enable more renewable projects to be built to meet California’s clean energy goals.”

The SCE-Lotus partnership calls for Lotus to lead the project’s development. Upon completion and regulatory approval, SCE will buy the entire project and lease 25% of the transmission capability to Lotus.
