State appeals court rejects power plant approval

•  National News     updated  2014/02/10 13:56


A state appeals court has rejected approval of Pacific Gas and Electric Co.'s planned new natural gas power plant in Contra Costa County.

The 1st District Court of Appeal in San Francisco said the California Public Utilities Commission approved the plant in Oakley without hearing firsthand from anyone that it was needed.

The court issued its 3-0 ruling on Wednesday. The Contra Costa Times reports (http://bit.ly/1e9Ew76) that the court has previously also turned back the commission's approval of the plant.

PG&E spokeswoman Tamar Sarkissian told the newspaper the utility was carefully reviewing the court's ruling.

Supporters say California needs more energy production, and the 586-megawatt plant would help.

Opponents say the state should be moving away from fossil fuels to other, cleaner energy sources.
