California Electric Substations

Metadata Updated: September 17, 2019

The California Energy Commission created the Electric Substation geospatial data layer to display the locations of substations in California. When used in association with the Energy Commission’s Power Plant and Electric Transmission Lines geospatial data layers, viewers can analyze the geographic relationships with the substations across utilities, counties and the state.

The substation data, as one of the Energy Commission’s critical infrastructure spatial datasets will be used to:
1. Support the CEC/STEP/Strategic Transmission Planning and Corridor Designation Office in corridor study and transmission line siting;
2. Support analysis by CEC staff by providing general geographic reference information;
3. Enhance communication between and among government agencies on emergency management, resource management, economic development, and environmental study;
4. Provide illustration of critical infrastructure spatial data to the public or other agencies in hard copy format.
