Alamitos Energy Center Under Way and Making Good Progress
After years of planning and review, in April 2017 the California Energy Commission (CEC) approved the license for the Alamitos Energy Center (AEC), a lower-profile, more efficient and modernized natural gas power plant that will replace the existing AES Alamitos Generating Station on Studebaker Road in Long Beach, CA.
Construction on the new AEC is under way and making excellent progress — for more information, visit renewaesalamitos.com. It will be half the size of the existing one, with lower stacks and more street-side landscaping. It will use modern, more efficient technology, start and stop more quickly, and allow the state to integrate more wind and solar into its energy mix.
