"Los Angeles Utility Says Gas Plant Leaks Methane"

"LOS ANGELES — A Los Angeles utility said Wednesday that one of its natural gas plants is leaking globe-warming methane, prompting calls from environmentalists to abandon plans to extend the life of other California facilities like it.

Natural gas compressors at the Valley Generating Station are leaking more than 100 kilograms of methane per hour, the LA Department of Water and Power said in a statement.

“The emissions at Valley are considered incidental emissions that are not generally subject to regulation or permitting,” the statement said."
