The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) said it will consider selling its share in the Navajo coal-fired power plant in Arizona by 2015, four years ahead of the scheduled lease end date of 2019. LADWP said in its 2012 Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) that it will replace the lost generation with energy efficiency projects, renewable energy and natural gas.

LADWP’s other source of coal, the Intermountain Power Project (IPP) in Utah, is in talks to undergo a conversion to natural gas no later than July 1, 2025, two years before the legal deadline. However, the 35 other purchasers of the IPP must agree upon any future plans.

LADWP said in the IRP wants to reduce its use of coal to help lower greenhouse gas emissions.
