Community Calendar Announcement


December 11, 2001

Dear Editor/Publisher:

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

The California Energy Commission staff has scheduled an evidentiary hearing to discuss the proposed Morro Bay Power Plant Project. The hearing will be held as follows:

MONDAY, DECEMBER 17, 2001
TUESDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2001 (if necessary)

Beginning at 10 a.m.
1055 Morro Avenue
Morro Bay, California
(Wheelchair Accessible)

Evidentiary hearings are held to establish the factual record necessary to reach a decision in this case. This is accomplished by taking oral, written, or documentary evidence from the parties. Formal evidentiary hearings are more structured than Committee conferences or staff workshops.

Duke Energy is proposing a 1,200-megawatt modernization of the existing 1,030-megawatt Morro Bay Power Plant. The applicant plans construction of two new 600-megawatt combined cycle units to replace the currently operating generating units. Each new unit will consist of two gas-fired turbines and one steam turbine.

Members of the public are encouraged to participate and will have the opportunity to comment and ask clarifying questions on any of the subjects. For more information on how to participate, contact the Energy Commission's Public Adviser, Roberta Mendonca, at (916) 654-4489, toll free at (800) 822-6228, or by e-mail at pao@energy.state.ca.us.
