Sierra Club Challenged Repowering Project at Glendale Power Plant. Sierra Club filed a California Environmental Quality Act challenge to the City of Glendale’s approval of a project to repower a power plant with five new natural gas-fired engines. Sierra Club alleged that the project description “paints an inaccurate and incomplete picture of the Project that dramatically inflates Glendale’s energy needs,” which provided a basis for the arbitrary rejection of viable alternatives that could accelerate the City’s transition from fossil fuels. Sierra Club also alleged that the environmental impact report overlooked the projects’ impacts on environmental justice communities.
