Description (excerpt):

In this report, the PEAK Coalition documents progress made since the coalition was founded and examines the steps taken by state, city, utility, and energy industry stakeholders to hasten or delay the shift from polluting power plants to clean, zero-emissions alternatives. The report details evidence of encouraging progress, however, the transition has not progressed at the pace needed to protect the health of environmental justice communities and meet the state’s climate goals. More than 75 percent of the city’s fossil peaker capacity may remain online and operating beyond 2025, when stricter peaker emissions limits are intended to take full effect.

The report discusses the negative impacts these power plants are having on surrounding communities, highlights challenges and barriers impeding the speed of the transition, and recommends pathways forward to accelerate the transition from peaker plants to clean alternatives.
