Modernizing El Segundo's Power Generating Station
NRG Energy, Inc. has entered the construction phase of the El Segundo Repowering Project to provide 550 megawatts (MW) of new generating capacity, enough to supply over 400,000 homes, at NRG’s existing El Segundo Generating Station. This new gas-fueled capacity using state-of-the art, rapid-response combined cycle technology is expected to be online by August 1, 2013, in time to support the expected summer peak demand.
These new, highly efficient units can be online in 10 minutes, providing critically important back-up support for wind and other renewable power. They also offer significant environmental benefits, including reduced emissions and air cooling instead of ocean water cooling. The new units will use 30% less natural gas than the units they are replacing, helping California meet mandatory greenhouse gas standards.
