Energy Commission Schedules Informational Hearing,
Site Visit to Proposed Three Mountain Power Project

On Monday, August 16, 1999, members of the public and other interested parties can learn about the Three Mountain Power Project, a 500-megawatt natural gas-fired combined-cycle power plant proposed by Three Mountain Power, LLC (Ogden Pacific Power), to be constructed one mile northwest of Burney in Shasta County.

The proposed project would be comprised of two gas-fired turbine generators, one or more steam turbines and support equipment. If approved for construction and operation, the power plant would be built adjacent to an existing 10-megawatt waste wood-fueled power plant. The project would connect to existing 230 kilovolt Pacific Gas and Electric transmission lines located near the project site.
