Edison Spending $12 Million on Downtown Repairs, Upgrades

Southern California Edison promised to spend $12 million on downtown Santa Barbara grid improvements over the next two years. The work comes after a spate of blackouts enraged business owners who’ve complained of lost revenue. Edison will replace old equipment with smarter gadgetry, do more tree clearing, and tie downtown’s 10 circuits to other grid circuits “so that there is more redundancy and flexibility to isolate outages.” More details will be announced at an open house on 4/16 at the Carrillo Recreation Center.
