Reliant Energy Inc., owner of power plants in eight U.S. states, reduced production at a California electricity generating plant.
The company’s 63-megawatt Coolwater Generating Station Unit 1, 81.5-megawatt Unit 2 and 245.3-megawatt Unit 3 were all shut for planned reasons as of 3:15 p.m. local time yesterday, the California Independent System Operator said in a report.
The plant’s 245.9-megawatt has been shut for the past two days, reports showed.
Reliant’s plant, located northeast of Los Angeles in Daggett, California, burns natural-gas and has a total of four units.
One megawatt is enough power for about 800 average U.S. homes, according to the Energy Department in Washington.
