U.S.A: California regulators propose 2 GW new peak capacity to address reliability concerns

26 June 19: California regulators have launched a "procurement track" to address potential reliability questions between 2019 and 2024, including whether there are sufficient resources to meet the state's peak system reliability needs. On June 20, the California Public Utilities Commission issued a commissioner's ruling that recommends load serving entities (LSE) procure 2 GW of new peak capacity statewide, to come online by Aug. 1, 2021.
