by Garth Meyer As the heat wave lifted from Redondo Beach in recent days, questions remained about the city's waterfront power plant, still active for situations such as this. The AES generator contributed to the state grid during the surge in demand, though it was limited due to mechanical problems.  The heat wave arrived just after plant owner Leo Pustilnikov filed a preliminary proposal to develop the 54-acre site once it is decommissioned. If and when that is. The date is currently set for December 2023, though doubts have increased that it will stand.
