AES Redondo Beach

The power plant was built between 1954 and 1967. It was owned and operated by Southern California Edison until 1998, when the electric industry was restructured and Southern California Edison sold most of its generating facilities. At that time, AES Southland purchased the Alamitos, Huntington Beach and Redondo Beach generating facilities.

AES Redondo Beach is an important source of clean and reliable electricity, generating 1,310 MW, which is enough power to light more than one million California homes and businesses.

Protecting the Environment

To help protect our local environment, we’ve installed state-of-the-art NOx and CO emission control equipment on all of our units — reducing air emissions by 70%.

Committed to Safety

Safety is a top priority at AES Redondo Beach — for our workers and our neighbors. Since 2010, our accident rate has been zero, and our goal is to keep it that way.


As part of the agreement, AES is currently searching for a third-party or partner to develop the 50-acre site for non-industrial use –– moving forward with our mission to make Redondo Beach a better place.
