owners of the Southbay Power Plant have withdrawn their application for a new
power plant. SDG&E still is agreeing to move the switch yard to a smaller
parcel further south. The California Energy Commission is still insisting
upon RMR, which is must run status for this dinosaur that only runs when the
power is needed by the grid, because it not only is dirty, it is very
expensive to operate. Their lease expires in 2011. The assumption is the
plant will be torn down, and replacement energy production will be found by
then, but nothing is certain.
