Critical Power Source to Provide Reliability and Operational Flexibility Future Development
Harbor Substation is located near the Platinum Triangle and was built inside a building that blends with similar structures in the area. This facility will improve electric service reliability and provide additional power capacity to Central Anaheim.
The new substation utilizes Gas Insulated Switchgear technology which allows the substation equipment to have a much smaller footprint and was constructed inside an aesthetically pleasing building. All incoming/outgoing electric lines to the substation were constructed underground.
This substation is outfitted with two transformers that provide enough additional capacity to serve 15,000 customers.
Harbor Substation will help Anaheim Public Utilities meet existing power demands, future development in the area, and maintain power reliability.
This project will help maintain a stable level of electric service in the area during the event of a major power shutdown or service disruption.
