      Three California power plants burning fossil fuels might be replaced with batteries, under a proposal state utility regulators will discuss in January. If approved by the California Public Utilities Commission, the proposal would direct Pacific Gas and Electric Co. to search for energy storage projects that could replace the output of the three plants, two of them located in Yuba City, the third in San Jose. The commission’s five voting members are scheduled to vote on the issue on Jan. 11.
