Southern California Edison "discontinued" its effort to revive the moribund Mohave power plant in a filing with the California Public Utilities Commission May 22. "Despite an intensive effort over several months," the utility reported, it has not been able to find a suitable buyer for the plant. The coal-fired plant faced expensive pollution retrofits, as well as problems with coal and water supplies. The 1,580 MW plant was shut down at the end of 2006. Edison and part owner Salt River Project attempted to put together a new ownership group to restart the plant earlier this year. "Edison and the other co-owners [including the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power and Nevada Power] are now in the process of ceasing all current activities that have been aimed at preserving and facilitating the possibility of a Mohave restart," according to the utility filing.
