The Energy Commission staff and San Jose City District 2 Metcalf Energy Center Advisory Committee will conduct a joint workshop to discuss air quality and public health issues at the proposed power plant. The workshop will be held as follows:

Calpine Corporation and Bechtel Enterprises, Inc. (Calpine/Bechtel) propose to develop the Metcalf Energy Center, a 600-megawatt, natural gas–fired, combined cycle power plant. The proposed site lies at the southern base of Tulare Hill in northern Coyote Valley of South San Jose to the west of Monterey Highway and south of the Metcalf Road intersection. The site is bordered by Fisher Creek to the north and west and the Union Pacific Railroad right–of–way to the east. Blanchard Road is to the south. The site is currently zoned for agricultural use.

Members of the public will have the opportunity to comment and ask questions during the workshop. Persons requiring information on how to participate in the Energy Commission's review of the proposed project should contact Roberta Mendonca, the Energy Commission's Public Adviser, at (916) 654-4489 or toll free in California at (800) 822-6228, or by e-mail at pao@energy.state.ca.us

Information about the proposed project is available on the Energy Commission's Web site at:
