Calif. commission agrees to end license for delayed hybrid gas/solar plant

The California Energy Commission on May 9 granted a request to terminate the license for the Victorville 2 Hybrid Power Project, a long-delayed 563-MW solar and natural gas power plant.

The plant, also known as Victorville 2 CC, was to be built on a 300-acre site at the Southern California Logistics Airport in San Bernardino County, Calif., and include up to 50 MW of solar. The commission approved the project in 2008 and later agreed to move the construction start date from July 16, 2013, to July 16, 2018.

But in April, the project developer, the city of Victorville, Calif., asked the commission to terminate the project's license. The commission approved the request during its May 9 meeting, spokesman Edward Ortiz said. A written order was not immediately available on the commission website May 10.

Instead of moving ahead with the plant, planners want to lease the land that was slated for the proposal to an unnamed solar developer.

Victorville spokeswoman Sue Jones had said the Southern California Logistics Airport Authority was in negotiations with a solar developer to lease the land with the intention that solar energy generated there would be used by tenants of the airport's neighboring industrial park via Victorville Municipal Utilities and would be sent to the power grid.

Jones said the Victorville 2 project fell victim to economic woes that swept the country in the latter part of the last decade. The city hoped to find a buyer for the plant development rights, but the project was scoped to meet 2008 power needs, she said. Things are different today, as seen in a power market with more solar and renewable energy sources, Jones said. (Docket No. 07-AFC-01C)
