The Canyon Power Plant (CPP) is located 3.25 miles northeast of downtown Anaheim at 3071 East Miraloma Avenue.
CPP is a nominal 200-megawatt simple-cycle, peaking power plant consisting of four natural gas-fired LM6000 PC SPRINT combustion turbine generators (CTGs) and associated infrastructure. Each CTG has a mechanical inlet air chiller to provide additional quick-start peaking generation capacity to support local demand and meet resource adequacy requirements.
Additional equipment includes step-up transformers, an electrical switchyard, air emission control equipment, aqueous ammonia storage tank, water storage tanks, and underground utility lines.
On March 11, 2015, the California Energy Commission approved a Post-Certification Amendment (TN 203935) to revise Air Quality Conditions of Certification to increase the allowable usage of each of the four turbines, amend the emission factor used to demonstrate compliance with the PM 10 emission limits, and lower the allowable operation hours for the black start engine.
Power Plant Certification and Exemption Processes
As required by the Warren-Alquist Act, the Energy Commission monitors Commission-certified energy projects throughout construction, operation, and closure to ensure compliance with the conditions of certification imposed by the Commission’s Final Decision for approving the projects.
