During his news interview, Jerry says:" My job as Governor is to build for the long term future. So this line is going to help us over the next decade and beyond to make sure san Dieogans and other people in this area have enough electricity."

"We have 38 million people. We need electricity, we need jobs and to do that, we've got to build stuff. When you build stuff things change. Some people don't like change. Well, I kind of like change myself."
At his first turn as Governor over 30 years ago, good ol' Jerry killed the Sundesert Nuclear facility that was to be built near Blythe California. In 1999 and through about 2001 this lack of baseload power production allowed ENRON to manipulate power production and drive up the cost of energy in the State.
The article states there will be 1,000 MW of power available eventually, that would power 650,000 homes. Why not put 2 or 3KW (10 to 15 solar panels) peak solar PV generation on 650,000 roofs and use the power where it will be generated? This also "builds stuff" and creates jobs.
