The Branford Group, leaders in the valuation and auction of surplus industrial assets, are to sell the GE Power Inland Empire Energy Centre. The plant is located in Menifee, California and was installed in 2009.The sale takes place under the management of Chain Asset Management Solutions.
Energy provider GE Power operates in more than 180 countries. In summer 2019 GE Power announced plans to close their Californian natural gas-fired facility. The company commented that the facility is “not designed for the needs of the evolving California market, which requires fast-start capabilities to satisfy peak demand periods.” Competition from wind and solar energy also contributed to the decision to close the plant.
