Completion of power plants commemorated
Calpine Corporation dedicated the completion Wednesday of three peaker power plants on Lambie Road near Suisun City.
Bob Fishman, Calpine vice-president, Solano Supervisor Duane Kromm, and Randall Abernathy, a representative of the California Independent System Operator met at the project to commemorate its successful operation.
The project consists of three, 45-megawatt peaker plants within the Lambie Industrial Park.
The idea for the project came about in the throes of California's energy crisis in 2001.
The peaker plants are designed to go from standstill to full output, helping the state's electrical grid withstand periods of peak power demand.
