The 256-MW Unit 3 of the gas-fired La Paloma Generating facility in California experienced an unplanned outage on Feb. 7, according to a report from the Department of Energy (DOE).
DOE’s Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability reported that La Paloma Unit 3 had entered into an unplanned outage. DOE based its report on data from the California Independent System Operator (CAISO).
La Paloma has received approval from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for a transaction that would result in Old Clem Investments II LP indirectly owning 20.14% of the equity interests in La Paloma. An EIG Energy Fund entity currently owns more than 52% of La Paloma.
La Paloma is a relatively-new (2003) natural gas complex with four generating units in Kern County, Calif.
