Energy Commission Siting Committee
Revises Proposed Decision for Metcalf Energy Center

Sacramento -- The Revised Presiding Member's Proposed Decision on the Metcalf Energy Center is now available.

This revised document is not the final decision on the Metcalf project, but incorporates modifications and clarifications made in response to comments heard at the July 30, 2001, public conference on the original proposed decision.

Like the original proposed decision, the revised document recommends approval of the 600-megawatt, gas-fired power plant planned for the Coyote Valley in south San Jose. The project is a proposal of the San Jose-based Calpine Corporation and San Francisco-based Bechtel Enterprises, Inc.

The Revised Presiding Member's Proposed Decision is available on the Energy Commission's website at:

Public comments on the revised decision must be submitted to the Commission within 15 days. Comments must be addressed to:

California Energy Commission
Docket Unit, MS-4
Attn: Docket No. 99-AFC-3
1516 Ninth Street
Sacramento, CA 95814-5512

The Metcalf Energy Center is tentatively scheduled for a vote of the full California Energy Commission as follows:

Wednesday, September 12, 2001
Beginning at 9 a.m.
California Energy Commission
First Floor Hearing Room A
1516 Ninth Street
