So, will the natural gas pipeline be used to fire boilers at night or on cloudy days? This makes the generation station capable of being used as a spinning and baseload generation resource. A couple of other projects have been scaled back because the type of technology used could not be used as a baseload or spinning generation resource. PPAs, Power Production Agreements with utility companies need to be signed before the generated product has anywhere to go. It is more attractive to a utility if the generation can be used "as needed" instead of as a peak load generation source only.
