SAN DIEGO (AP) - A San Diego utility has donated more than 500 acres of land to the government as part of a pact that allows a new power line to cross federal land.

The U-T San Diego reports the U.S. Forest Service and conservation groups stand to receive more than 11,000 acres from San Diego Gas & Electric as part of a 2010 agreement to offset land damaged by the $2 billion Sunrise Powerlink transmission line.

The utility recently bought two parcels from private landowners and turned them over to the Cleveland National Forest. Officials would not disclose how much they paid.

The transmission line was completed in 2012.
