Riverside Public Utilities’ Magnolia-Plaza Reliability Project, is a five-phased Capital Improvement Project that will expand our Plaza Substation facility, retire our Magnolia Substation, and relocate an important energy transmission line.
The planned upgrades to our energy delivery system will eliminate obsolete equipment, help modernize our local energy delivery infrastructure, and help increase the energy efficiency and reliability of Riverside’s vibrant southwestern neighborhoods.

Work at the Plaza Substation location will include a new 10-foot block wall, drought tolerant landscaping, and, an extension of Elizabeth Street, including new sidewalk space and curbing, which will help beautify the area.
