5th post from Energy conference: State moving wrong way on energy resources

Posted by Gino DiCaro, VP, Communications on July 27, 2007

More from Wiliam Booth on California Energy resources:

"You want to use your fixed resources as much as you can and we’re going in the opposite direction in CA ... We’re back into planning generation and we don’t know the rules."

Current (2006) resource mix

Coal 15.7%
Large hydro 19%
Natural gas 41.5%
Nuclear 12.9%
Renewables 10.9%

Three of these are off limits for growth in California (coal, hydro, nuclear).  New generation resources must come from just 52.4% of the current mix, and/or elsewhere.
