Welcome to the California Public Utilities Commissionís (CPUC) PG&E Web site for the Northeast San Jose Transmission Reinforcement Project.  Pacific Gas & Electric Company (PG&E) submitted Application Number 98-07-007 in July 1998.  Between July 1998 and April 1999, the CPUC reviewed this application for authority to construct and operate a new 230 kilovolt transmission line in Alameda and Santa Clara Counties and a new substation in Santa Clara County. CEQA documents including a Draft EIR, Supplemental Draft EIR, and Final EIR, were prepared and circulated. Copies may be viewed here.

The Northeast San Jose Transmission Reinforcement Project was approved by CPUC Decision D.01-05-059 in November 2001 and construction began in May 2002.
