AES Boosts Huntington Beach Gas-Fired Unit 3 in California

AES Corp., an Arlington, Virginia- based power producer, restored output at a natural gas-fired unit at a Southern California plant.

The company’s 225-megawatt Huntington Beach Generating Station Unit 3 was operating at full capacity as of 3:15 p.m. local time today, the California Independent System Operator said in a report. The shutdown yesterday was unplanned.

The generating plant has a total capacity of 904 megawatts, according to the website of AES. One megawatt can power 800 typical U.S. homes.
