230kv Project

The 230kv Circuit Switchers #265 and #275 Replacement Project replaced damaged and aging equipment by providing new disconnect switches with load interrupters at the SLAC 230kv tower 1.  The damaged 265 circuit switcher and the 275 circuit switcher were removed and replaced with new equipment.  The final configuration returned the site reliability back to two functional switches.  The construction took place within the Scientific Program shutdown period of August, 2012.  The USA Easement from Bear Gulch Road to the Tower has been repaired to a usable and maintainable state.
