Demolition at El Segundo Generating Station

December 16, 2010 12:26:19 AM PST
Two units were demolished at the El Segundo Generating Station on Thursday to make room for two new replacement units.

The demolished units were retired in January 2003. The company is making way for two new, highly efficient replacement units, scheduled to go online in 2013.

The new units will be gas fueled and can be on-line in 10 minutes, providing backup support for solar power and other renewable energy sources.
