Well, that’s it, after midnight on February 28th, 2011, Mirant (aka GenOn*) will no longer be contrackually obligated to have our iconic Potrero Power Station (aka Potrero Generating Station) standing by ready to power your hair dryer and charge up your sex toys and whatnot.

All the deets:
On November 30, 2010, Mirant, now known as GenOn, filed revisions to its reliability must run agreement for the Potrero power plant for the 2011 contract year. The agreement includes a new provision that allows the ISO to provide notice of termination during the contract year. All of the terms and conditions were negotiated and agreed to among the affected entities, which include Pacific Gas and Electric Company and the CPUC in addition to GenOn and the ISO. By letter dated December 21, 2010, the ISO provided GenOn with notice of termination effective January 1, 2011. Pursuant to the amendments, the termination of the agreement will be effective as of midnight of February 28, 2011. On January 19, 2011, FERC issued an order accepting the reliability must-run amendments. On January 25, 2011, GenOn filed notice of cancellation of its reliability must-run rate schedule effective February 28, 2011. Responsible attorney: Sidney Davies
