Valencia – CAP 115kv Line

Arizona Electric Power Cooperative, Inc. (AEPCO) is proposing to build a new 115 kV transmission line that will provide critical backup power to Central Arizona Project’s (CAP) system which is responsible for powering the pumps that deliver water to southern Arizona.

The new transmission line will begin at AEPCO’s Valencia Substation which is located on the southwest corner of the intersection of Valencia and Vahalla roads. It will then procced east somewhere within a 700 foot Arizona Corporation Commission approved corridor along West Valencia road for approximately 2.7 miles, and then interconnect with CAP’s existing 115 kV line.
