EL CENTRO — A three-year legal battle between the Imperial Irrigation District and the state’s grid operator is finally over.

The IID and the California Independent System operator reached a legal settlement earlier this week, in which the CAISO has agreed to upgrade one of IID’s power lines (S-Line). This will allow more electricity to flow from the Imperial Valley to other markets within the state of California.
