California Public Utilities Commission Approves NRG Energy's Carlsbad Energy Center

The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) approved the SDG&E Power Purchase and Tolling Agreement for the NRG Energy, Inc. Carlsbad Energy Center. The 500 megawatt five unit natural gas peaking plant expects to help ensure reliability in southern California following the closure of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station in 2013 and the impending retirement of the Encina Generating Station due to California's Once-Through-Cooling ban.

The U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania Dismisses Class Action Lawsuit Against NRG Cheswick Station

On May 13, 2015, the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania dismissed with prejudice a class action lawsuit filed in 2012 against NRG's Energy's Cheswick Generating Station in Springdale, Pennsylvania. NRG did not pay the plaintiffs any money or other consideration to obtain the dismissal. In this case, the plaintiffs had argued that they could bring state law trespass and nuisance claims against the Cheswick station because of the plant's air emissions-even though the plant is fully permitted under federal and state law and in compliance with its permits. The U.S. Court of Appeals held in 2014 that the state law claims were not preempted by the Clean Air Act. The district court has now dismissed all of the plaintiffs' claims. In the dismissal order, the plaintiffs conceded they had failed to prove any personal injuries, property damage, or environmental contamination from the plant, and had failed to prove that the Cheswick Generating Station was operated improperly.
