This station is constructed to receive, transform and distribute to the local sub-stations power transmitted from the company's water-power plants on Santa Ana River, Mill Creek, Lytle Creek and Kern River, and also contains a large steam auxiliary plant to supplement the water- generated power. It receives power at 60,000 and 30,000 volts and generates and distributes at 16,000 and 2300 volts."
