Temporary generators now online in Roseville

Two temporary mobile generators are now online in Roseville following six weeks of construction at the Roseville Energy Park.

The two generators were deployed by the Department of Water Resources (DWR) following an emergency proclamation by the governor in July. Each unit can produce up to 30 MW of power, totaling 60 MW of power. 

The generators would be deployed under emergency conditions determined by the California Independent System Operator (ISO) under a contingency plan developed in coordination with the CEC and the California Public Utilities Commission.
