New Energy Project Opportunities in Southern California Now Clearer


Opportunities to develop new energy projects in Southern Californi — whether conventional generation, renewable resource, demand response, or energy storage — became clearer last week as the result of an order issued by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC).

On March 13, the CPUC authorized the long-term procurement plans of Southern California Edison Company (SCE) and San Diego Gas & Electric Company (SDG&E) to procure up to 1,500 MWs in new energy supplies, as part of a process to replace 2,200 MWs the mothballed San Onofre Nuclear Generation Station (SONGS) would have supplied. At least 600 MWs must be from California’s “preferred resources”—renewable power, demand response resources and energy efficiency.
