Lodi Energy Center will generate enough power for almost 300,000 homes

West of Lodi, on the edge of the Delta, a small army of very skilled men and women are building a $452 million power plant. When it is fired up in a few months, it will provide enough energy for nearly one million people — and be the cleanest, most efficient plant of its kind in America.

While driving down Interstate 5 during the last two years, Lodi residents have watched a towering structure rise near White Slough wastewater treatment plant.

The looming, metal metropolis of twisting pipes, 800,000 yards of wiring and a control center with a long panel of screens will be supplying the city of Lodi with a steady stream of electricity starting this fall.

    Wind and solar power do not provide much energy anyway. Coal and natural gas fired power plants are still the most efficent and cost effect way of providing electricity. Much like the case that is trying to be made that electric cars will soon be the most efficient means of transporting us, it's unfounded. The proponents of electric cars are still trying to advance on a marketing ploy the auto industry used way back in 1911 insisting electric cars are most efficient. time and time again it has been proven the internal combustion engine is the most efficient for cars and trucks.
