THOUSAND OAKS, Calif.— The California Public Utilities Commission on March 13 rejected (see PDF) a controversial power-line project proposed in Southern California and instead approved a scaled-down proposal to upgrade existing substations. The new substation and high-voltage power lines would have cut through habitat for endangered species and a rural greenbelt that separates the cities of Thousand Oaks and Simi Valley. Reduced energy demand (see graph) and fierce opposition from environmental groups and the local community led to a downsized project.
