- Megawatt (MW)
- One million watts, or 1,000 kilowatts, which is enough energy to power about 750 to 1,000 average California homes at any given time. A megawatt is the basic unit for measuring power generation and is the billing unit for wholesale electricity.
- Mountainview Generating Station
- SCE plant in Redlands, Calif., capable of providing power of more than 685, 000 homes in the Inland Empire, the fastest growing area in the company’s 11-county service territory. And the “combined-cycle” design is operating at higher fuel efficiency than forecast. The six Mountainview turbines are producing a kilowatt of electricity using less than 7,000 Btu of fuel, compared to older plants which require 10,000 Btu or more. The savings – more power from less fuel – is passed on to customers.
