Intermountain Power Plant

Currently, a third to a fifth of the energy consumed in Los Angeles is provided by a coal plant in Utah, the Intermountain Power Plant, which is scheduled to shut down in 2025. Although the City of Los Angeles is planning to shut down three gas plants locally, it is planning to replace the Utah plant with a gas powered plant.

Some Neighborhood Councils have taken a position to support renewable energy and asked the City to not repurpose the Utah coal powered plant into a natural gas powered plant. You can read the letter in support of renewable energy.

We did discuss renewable energy November of 2016 (items 14 & 15) and did not take a position at that time. Is the time right now to take a position?

What say you North Hills West? Is this an item we should weigh in on and what position should we take? Tell us at Board@NHWNC.net.
