More Emergency Power Needed

Sponsored by:

The state´s top power managers recommend building emergency power plants in eight cities, and redesigning the state´s wholesale energy market to avoid future blackouts and price spikes.

The California Power Authority and the California Independent System Operator say both are needed to avoid a repeat of the sporadic outages that hit parts of the state two years ago. The ISO is sending the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission a revised comprehensive market plan to replace one from a year ago. And the power authority says new power plants are needed in Santa Maria, Davis, Ignacio, Pueblo, Watsonville, and San Francisco Airport, Paso Robles and Sonoma.
