CEC Building 0820

California Energy Commission headquarters in Sacramento. The CEC decided to allow temporary natural gas generators to leapfrog the California Environmental Quality Act to keep the state's grid operating in summer heat.

The California Department of Water Resources is procuring five 30-MW natural gas-fired generators by Oct. 31 to help compensate for a projected electricity shortage this summer.

The generators are being deployed to existing power plants in Roseville and Yuba City, and DWR is still in the process of finalizing the third location, Ryan Endean, acting deputy director of DWR's Public Affairs Office, told California Energy Markets in an Aug. 20 email.
