Naval Training Center
San Diego, California
The Naval Training Center (NTC) is a 25 MW combined cycle cogeneration facility that served the Marine Corps Recruiting Depot (MCRD) and the Antisubmarine Warfare Training Complex in San Diego. NTC achieved commercial operation in 1989. Atlantic Power indirectly owns 100% of the Project, and also manages and operates the Project.
Historically, steam produced by the project was used to meet the energy requirements of a network of 245 buildings on the Depot campus. The steam agreement with the Navy, which also allowed the Company the use of the site, expired in February 2018. Operations of the plant ceased on February 7, 2018. As a result, the PPA with San Diego Gas & Electric Company (SDG&E) was terminated in February 2018, ahead of its December 2019 scheduled expiration. The Company is proceeding with decommissioning of the NTC site, as required by its agreement with the Navy.
