Coal-fired Mohave Generating Station decommissioning to finish this week

Mohave Generating Station California decommissioning Salt River Project LADWP NV Energy Southern Californis Edison

The decommissioning of the coal-fired Mohave Generating Station will be completed with a final walk-through of the property scheduled this week, according to a report from the Mohave Daily News.

The 1,580 MW facility was jointly owned by Southern California Edison, Salt River Project, NV Energy (NYSE: NVE) and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. The plant closed on Dec. 31, 2005 because of a consent decree that required the plant to upgrade the environmental control equipment or cease operations, the Daily News stated.

Although efforts were made to either restart or sell the plant, the plant was decommissioned in 2009 with the intention of demolishing the facility, according to the report. Monitoring will continue on the site every six months for the next five years to check for any possible contamination.
