"We are pleased to complete this transaction and welcome the TBC employees to the NextEra Energy family," said Jim Robo, chairman and chief executive officer of NextEra Energy. "This transaction furthers our goal of creating America's leading competitive transmission company and is consistent with our strategy of adding high-quality regulated assets to our portfolio."

TBC is a transmission utility that owns a 53-mile, high-voltage direct current underwater transmission cable system with utility rates set by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and revenues paid by the California Independent System Operator. The cable system extends from Pittsburg, California, to San Francisco, California, and can provide more than 40% of the electrical power used in San Francisco. TBC was developed and approved in response to a 1998 blackout in the Bay Area, which demonstrated a need for greater resiliency of the electric grid in that region.
