“Our 12KV switchover went remarkably smooth with basically nothing going wrong. The Southern California Edison and Chula Vista Electric crews performed their tasks admirably and should be commended. Having two individual crews working so close together could have been problematic, but not in this case. The smoothness of the transition is evidence of their cooperation.”
