Tentative OK For New Huntington Beach Gas Power Plant
The public has 30 days to comment on the decision, and a hearing is scheduled for Sept. 17 in Sacramento. The full commission may accept, reject or change the committee's recommendations at an Oct. 7 meeting.
AES Southland Development has proposed the plant to replace the AES Huntington Beach Generating Station. The plan calls for demolishing the existing 1960s-era plant and building the new one in phases with the first unit completed in about 30 months. AES also owns power plants in Alamitos and Redondo Beach.
The commissioners' Proposed Decision finds that the new unit will be more energy efficient and generate less pollution than the plant it would replace. The new plant would use air for cooling rather than seawater, reducing potential risk to marine life.
