SCU Campus power distribution

The University receives two 12KV circuits from Silicon Valley Power (SVP) into the main Campus substation. Electrical distribution across campus to each facility is owned by SCU and maintained by the Utilities Department.

12kv or 4160V is delivered to each building via underground wiring and "Trayer" style submersible switches. Each building has a dedicated primary Delta/Y transformer and medium voltage switch. This provides an extremely flexible and reliable primary power distribution system.
