Community Calendar Announcement

April 18, 2000

Dear Editor / Publisher:

If your publication, radio or television station offers a calendar of community events, you may wish to include news of the following workshop.

Energy Commission staff has scheduled a public prehearing conference to discuss the proposed 1206-megawatt Moss Landing Power Plant Project. The workshop will be held:

MONDAY, MAY 8, 2000
Beginning at 1 p.m.
California Energy Commission
First Floor Hearing Room A
1516 Ninth Street., Sacramento, California
Sacramento, California
(Wheelchair accessible)

The project, as proposed by Duke Energy Power Services, is a modernization of the existing Moss Landing Power Plant site previously operated by PG&E for about 50 years. The project, located at the intersection of Highway 1 and Dolan Road, east of the community of Moss Landing near the Moss Landing Harbor, would replace the existing electric power generation Units 1-5 with two natural gas-fired, combined-cycle units. Each unit will use seawater for once-through cooling.

This prehearing conference provides an opportunity for interested parties to identify, address, and discuss topics of concern regarding the Application for Certification for the Moss Landing Power Plant Project. In addition, this hearing serves as a public forum to discuss parties' readiness for evidentiary hearings, disputes, and procedures that are necessary to conclude the certification process.

Members of the public are encouraged to attend the Conference and may comment on any topic discussed at the Conference. Those who wish further information about how to participate should contact Roberta Mendonca, the Commission's Public Adviser, at (916) 654-4489 or toll free at (800) 822-6228 or e-mail her at .
