San Diego Gas & Electric will bury power lines along Los Molinos and Calle Valle, next to the Boys & Girls Club starting this summer.
Tom Bonigut, San Clemente's assistant city engineer, Wednesday updated the San Clemente Chamber of Commerce's legislative committee on the project. He also discussed a plan to bury the lines in the historic Del Mar downtown district.
That project will be underway in the first months of 2014 he said.
Duane Cave, an SDG&E spokesman, said the Los Molinos/Calle Valle project will cost about $1 million, while the Del Mar project will cost about $1.5 million.
The money comes from rate payers -- the California Public Utilities Commission allowed a separate fund to be set up specifically to pay for burying lines in cities, Cave said.
