Companies are busy building at least 11 power plants in California that will add 2,669 MW. State regulatory agencies expect others going forward soon. Under Construction: -Riverside\u2019s 96 MW Energy Resource Center Expansion project (gas) due to open soon; -Northern California Power Authority\u2019s 255 MW Lodi Energy Center (gas), due May 2012; -Southern California Public Power Authority\u2019s 200 MW Canyon Power Plant (gas), due October 2012; -Dynegy\/NRG\u2019s 630 MW El Segundo plant repowering project (gas), due December 2012; -Solar Partners\/BrightSource\u2019s 370 MW Ivanpah Solar Tower (solar thermal), due to come online gradually by December 2012; -Pattern Energy\u2019s 101 MW Hatchet Ridge project (wind), due online soon; -Terra Gen Power\u2019s 150 MW Alta and 150 MW Alta 1 projects (no due date available); -NextEra Energy Resources\u2019 37 MW Montezuma Wind Project (no due date available); -San Gorgonio Farms\u2019 5 MW San Gorgonio Farms Repower Project (no due date available); -Ram Power\u2019s 35 MW Geysers Field plant in Healdsburg (geothermal), due online in 2013; and -CHAR\u2019s 49.9 MW Hudson Ranch 1 project in Imperial County (geothermal), due in 2012. In addition, the California Energy Commission tallies 14 power plants--including solar thermal and fossil-fueled--in the \u201cpre-construction\u201d phase. These are projects CEC has licensed and expects to go forward after tying up construction-related details, according to Energy Commission spokesperson Sandy Louey. Together, they would generate 5,795 MW of power. The CPUC tallies 21 utility-scale photovoltaic projects it considers \u201con schedule\u201d for completion, though the commission cannot verify the extent to which actual construction has begun. They would generate 3,657 MW. Data from CEC, CPUC, Geothermal Energy Association, and American Wind Energy Association.
