California's Newest Power Plant Goes Online Three Months Early, In Time For Summer Heat

The project is providing power based on short-term sales agreements now.  Beginning in August, CPV Sentinel will supply electricity under a long-term power purchase agreement to Southern California Edison, an Edison International (NYSE: EIX) company. CPV, the managing member, developer and asset manager, owns 25 percent of the project, while DGC owns 50 percent and will serve as the plant's operator and GE Energy Financial Services owns 25 percent. The project is expected to provide $6.4 million in annual property taxes for the life of the asset.

GE's LMS100® aeroderivative gas turbine, which uses advanced intercooling technology, is the world's most efficient simple-cycle gas turbine. With an output of more than 100 megawatts, unmatched hot-day performance due to intercooling, and capable of operating on both gas and liquid fuels, the machine defines a new era of flexible and efficient power generation. The LMS100 provides full output within 10 minutes of a cold start. With unparalleled efficiency and flexibility, the LMS100 is an ideal solution for power generation planners and developers needing to support variable loads.
