Dynegy Stops Production at Moss Landing Unit 1 in California

May 07, 2010

Dynegy Inc., a Houston-based power producer stopped output at a natural gas-fired generating plant unit in northern California.

The company’s 510-megawatt Moss Landing Power Block 1 was completely idled in an unplanned shutdown as of 3:15 p.m. local time today, the California Independent System Operator said in a report.

The unit was operating at full capacity at the same time yesterday. The power plant restored production at the 510- megawatt Power Block 2, which had 260 megawatts, or 51 percent, of its capacity idled at the same time yesterday.

The Moss generator is part of a 2,500-megawatt, four-unit power facility south of San Francisco in Monterey County, California. One megawatt can power about 800 typical U.S. homes.
