Naval Training Center
San Diego, California
The Naval Training Center (NTC) is a 25 MW combined cycle cogeneration facility that serves 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 has been 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. Electricity from the project has been sold to San Diego Gas & Electric Company (SDG&E) under a long-term PPA that was scheduled to expire in December 2019. The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) approved the early termination of the PPA on March 1, 2018. Separately, the Company has executed a new seven-year PPA for NTC with Southern California Edison, but performance under the PPA would require the Company to have site control. The PPA is pending regulatory approval from the California Public Utilities Commission.
