Krazifornia and Electricity (or lack there of)
The, CEC and SCE ^

Posted on 08/21/2012 4:41:31 PM PDT by jwsea55

Last week, SouthernKalifornia had a fair amount of heat. Kalifornians believe the way to solve generating capacity shortfalls is to get rid of existing generating capacity. The following is from a blog, SCE press release and KaliforniaEnergyCommission report (for some reason it is misspelled CEC, but heck it is Kalifornia).

From the blog:

Blog: Starts Signature Drive; More State Reports Show AES Redondo Not Required

It's been a busy week on the AES power plant front.... kicked off their petition signature drive for the resident initiative that phases out the Redondo power plant and replaces it with a mix of commercial and public recreational open space zoning. People have been driving to Redondo grocery stores just to sign the petition. They also held a fundraiser at Sophie's last Sunday as well.

Congressman Henry Waxman joined a growing group of elected officials and candidates opposing a new power plant in Redondo.

"As the author of the 1990 Clean Air Act, I think it is absolutely essential that we do all we can to cut air pollution in the region. There is no question that burning fossil fuels causes significant pollution and health impacts. We need to be shifting to clean energy. I believe we should remove the power plant from Redondo Beach. I encourage AES and California’s regulatory agencies to take this opportunity to permanently retire this facility and to allow redevelopment of the site.”

Meanwhile state power agencies released more reports showing AES Redondo is not required.

A CAISO power requirements analysis, dropped their predictions for power needs in the LA Basin. The report again shows that there is sufficient excess generation capacity in the Western LA Basin without AES Redondo and without the San Onofre Nuclear power plant.

You seem to have failed at attributing the name of the author and also to have failed at providing the correct title.

Is there any aspect of this endeavor in which you have not failed?

I had three pieces in one thread. The title of the blog post was included in the thread. I also included the SCE/CEC links as a juxtaposition. They are having brownouts and they want to get rid of generating capacity. Does that make sense to you?

The "good news" is that the neighbors don't want the land turned over to developers either because they are afraid that they will build a bunch of condos or apartments leading to even larger traffic jams on PCH.

So it looks like the whales on the side of the building will remain in limbo for some time to come.

That murual is fantastic. It would be a shame to see it go.

Interesting thing is: Where is the money going to come from?
