Our Preferred Resources Pilot: Forging a New Approach to Using Clean Energy

The Preferred Resources Pilot (PRP) is a multiyear study designed to determine whether clean energy resources – including solar, wind, energy storage, energy efficiency and energy conservation – can be acquired and deployed to offset the increasing customer demand for electricity in central Orange County. The growing demand for electricity is due in part to the closure of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station and the impending retirement of nearby ocean-cooled power plants, which may impact grid reliability. Based on the pilot’s results, the need for new gas-powered power plants in the region may be deferred or eliminated.
