Dynegy Inc., a Houston-based power producer, restarted a generating unit in Southern California.
The unit was shut for unplanned reasons at the same time yesterday according to the previous day’s report. The facility’s 222-megawatt Unit 4 was offline for a third day, reports showed.
The generators are part of a natural gas-fired plant with a total capacity of 706 megawatts located south of San Diego in the city of Chula Vista.
One megawatt can power about 800 typical U.S. homes.
