Really hard to say, I haven't found any good sources of individual power plant production and the curtailed/non-operational generator page
isn't necessarily accurate, either.

The CAISO page only shows utility scale plants. All net-metered PV generation only shows up as a reduction in demand.
The California Solar Statistics
page has a lot of data, but I don't know how accurate is now given that CSI rebates have just about run out and aren't available in many areas.
