Humboldt Power Plant May Work As Of Late Summer

KING SALMON, Ca. (KIEM) – Next summer, Humboldt County could have electricity during a public safety power shutoff.

Sheriff Honsal and First District Supervisor Rex Bohn meet with the vice President Of PG&E James Welsh earlier this week to discuss using The King Salmon Power Plant to produce power in the case of a shut-off.

So far, with air quality testing,  it looks like the plant could be approved to work as an island of power as soon as late summer.

This would meet the energy needs of ninety percent of Humboldt County and power urban centers and hospitals.

The project is still in progress and we will update you as more information is available.
