POWER BACK ON AT ANZA SITE Barbara Toy | After a lot of hard work by Edison and Anza Power, the electricity is back on for the Anza Valley, including our Anza site. They had to repair about 2 miles of transmission lines and supporting structures, a lot of it in inaccessible areas, so it was a major endeavor, but they actually got it done earlier than their announced target date, which was 8/6/18. So, if you go out to Anza, you should have power and water.
