Alternatives to the Proposed Project
Section 15126.6 of the California Environmental
Quality Act Guidelines, Consideration and
Discussion of Alternatives to the Proposed
Project, guides preparation of the alternatives
analysis. The State CEQA Guidelines require an
analysis of alternatives to the proposed project,
or to its location, which would feasibly attain
most of the basic project objectives but would
avoid or substantially lessen any of the
projects significant impacts.

Alternatives to the RBEP PSA
  • Preliminary Alternatives Analysis
  • Describes the CEQA requirements for an analysis
    of alternatives.
  • Lists the project objectives identified by the
    project applicant.
  • Discusses historical use of the RBGS site for
    electrical power generation.
  • Reviews and analyzes the potential feasibility of
    off-site alternatives at brownfield sites in the
    West Los Angeles subarea of the LA Basin local
    reliability area.
  • Analyzes an alternative site configuration to
    determine whether it could avoid or
    substantially lessen any of the projects
    significant impacts.
  • Analyzes retrofit alternative scenarios that
    could potentially achieve compliance with the
    State Water Boards once-through cooling policy.

Alternatives to the RBEP PSA
  • Preliminary Alternatives Analysis (continued)
  • Evaluates the potential to increase electrical
    generation at other AES power plant sites as an
    alternative to the proposed project.
  • Evaluates alternative gas-fired technologies.
  • Evaluates the No-project Alternative consisting
    of shut down of the RBGS by the end of 2020 with
    no demolition or construction at the site for the
    foreseeable future. Compares the impacts of the
    No-project Alternative to those of the proposed
    project.
  • Concludes that compared to the proposed project,
    the No-project Alternative would increase certain
    environmental impacts and avoid construction
    impacts. However, the No-project Alternative
    would not meet the basic project objectives.

Alternatives to the RBEP FSA
  • Draft Updated and Augmented Alternatives
    Analysis
  • The FSA will include an analysis of preferred
    resources as potential alternatives (energy
    efficiency, demand response, energy storage,
    renewable central station and distributed
    generation).
  • Given the time that will have passed between
    publication of the PSA and FSA, staff will update
    other content as necessary.
  • Staff will broadly interpret the project
    objectives to allow full analyses of potentially
    feasible alternatives (e.g., an alternative with
    less capacity).
