Electric power in the South Coast region in Santa Barbara County is completely dependent on a substation served by transmission lines traversing many miles through the Los Padres National Forest. The region known as the Goleta Load Pocket, served by the Goleta transmission substation, extends seventy miles from Point Conception to Carpinteria, and includes the cities of Goleta, Santa Barbara, and Carpinteria.

Giving Tuesday!

November 27, 2018 is Giving Tuesday! and it’s right around the corner. Join us this year in making this a special day.

This year, The League of Women Voters Santa Barbara is honored to be participating in Santa Barbara Gives! The campaign—now in its second year—will raise funds for what organizers call “some of our region’s most important community-based organizations.” The fundraising goal this year is $500,000. Tax-deductible gifts can be made through Dec. 31, but if you haven’t given yet, Giving Tuesday (Nov. 27) is a good time to make your contribution to LWVSB.
