Stanton Energy Reliability Center

Docket Number:

16-AFC-01 (Application For Certification)
16-AFC-01C (Compliance Proceeding)

Project Status: Licensed; In Compliance Phase

Key Dates


The facility, the Stanton Energy Reliability Center (SERC), will consist of two General Electric (GE) LM6000-based EGTs. EGT refers to the LM6000 PC Hybrid EGT jointly developed by General Electric International, Inc. (GE) and Wellhead Power Solutions. The EGT combines a combustion gas turbine with an integrated battery storage component operated by a proprietary software system.

The two GE LM6000 PC units will be natural gas-fired, simple-cycle combustion turbine, a clutch to provide operational flexibility as a synchronous condenser, and an integrated 10-megawatt (MW) GE Battery Energy Storage System. In total, SERC is proposing to provide 98 MW (nominal) of EGT capacity.

The facility will be located at at 10711 Dale Avenue, Stanton, Orange County, California.

SERC will provide needed generation for local reliability in Southern California Edison (SCE) West Los Angeles Basin Subarea and was selected by SEC as part of SCE’s 2013 Local Capacity Requirements Request for Offers sanctioned by the California Public Utility Commission (CPUC) to address specific need.

The Energy Commission certified the project on November 7, 2018.

Energy Commission Facility Certification Process

The California Energy Commission is the lead agency (for licensing thermal power plants 50 megawatts and larger) under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and has a certified regulatory program under CEQA. Under its certified program, the Energy Commission is exempt from having to prepare an environmental impact report. Its certified program, however, does require environmental analysis of the project, including an analysis of alternatives and mitigation measures to minimize any significant adverse effect the project may have on the environment.
