State Senator Henry Stern proposed to jumpstart the longed-for closure of the Aliso Canyon Gas Storage Facility on Friday, December 10, 2021, when he introduced a road map to accelerate the closure by 2023. It is still being drafted and has four key elements:
- Increase in clean energy generation and storage
- Reducing the demand for natural gas
- Establish a reliability plan for extreme weather events
- Increase union jobs with clean energy generation
His proposal is especially significant in light of the recent increase to 60% of storage capacity at Aliso Canyon.
He noted that the effort to shut down the storage facility is beyond the scope of one agency; indeed it will take the coordinated effort of multiple agencies and elected officials.
