I never knew that there was so much fossil fuel power in California. Lot of gas plants but even some coal. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_power_st...
The 'second worst' only generates 1300 MW so what is it must be a very inefficient plant to emit so much with natural gas. Have they considered the economic benefits of switching it to GE combined cycle gas turbines?
"- Six of the 19 orders are for the new, larger 7F 7-series gas turbine introduced today. These will be shipped to the Chubu Electric Power plant in Japan. Capable of reaching a worlds best 62 percent thermal efficiency, the plant will produce more than 2,300 megawatts in combined-cycle operation."
Bet you it would pay BIG dividends for them. Why should Japan get all the good stuff?
