Energia Sierra Juarez Transmission Project
Energia Sierra Juarez U.S. Transmission, LLC (ESJ-U.S.), a subsidiary of Sempra Generation, has applied to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for a Presidential permit to construct, operate, maintain, and connect a 1.7-mile transmission line (0.65 miles in the U.S.) across the international border between the U.S. and Mexico, near the town of Jacumba, California. The EIS addresses the environmental impacts of the proposed transmission line and the range of reasonable alternatives. Five alternatives were identified in this EIS, three of which were carried forward for detailed analysis (the No Action Alternative, a Double-Circuit 230-kilovolt (kV) Transmission Line and a Single-Circuit 500-kV Transmission Line).
