Dynegy Reduces Output at Moss Landing Plant in California

July 14, 2009

Dynegy Inc., (DYN:US) a Houston-based power producer, reduced output at a Northern California natural gas-fired generating plant.

The company’s 510-megawatt Moss Landing Power Block 2 had idled 260 megawatts, or 51 percent of capacity, for unplanned reasons as of 3:15 p.m. today, the California Independent System Operator said in a report.

The facility’s Power Block 1 unit had idled 30 megawatts, or 6 percent of capacity, for planned reasons, the report showed.

The units were operating at full capacity at the same time yesterday, a previous report showed.

The Moss generators are part of a 2,500-megawatt, four-unit power facility located south of San Francisco in Monterey County.

One megawatt can power about 800 typical U.S. homes.
