Huntington Beach Energy Project Underway and Making Good Progress

After years of planning and review, in April 2017 the California Energy Commission (CEC) approved the license for the Huntington Beach Energy Project (HBEP), a lower-profile, more efficient and modernized natural gas power plant that will replace the existing AES Huntington Beach on Newland Street.

The HBEP — which is currently under construction and making excellent progress — will help ensure a cleaner, more reliable energy future by replacing our existing plant with a modernized natural gas facility that is more efficient and responsive to California's electricity needs. For more information, please visit
