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 14-acre site is bordered by Fisher Creek to the north and west and the Union Pacific Railroad right-of-way to the east, and Blanchard Road is to the south.

Members of the public will have the opportunity to comment and ask questions during the workshops. 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.

General information about the proposed power plant is available on the Energy
