Community Calendar Announcement

February 21, 2002

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 workshop.

The Committee overseeing the Application for Certification for the proposed Los Esteros Critical Energy Facility will hold a prehearing conference as follows:

FEBRUARY 25, 2002
Beginning at 9 a.m.

First Floor Hearing Room A
California Energy Commission
1516 Ninth Street
Sacramento, California
(Wheelchair Accessible)

The prehearing conference will give all parties an opportunity to present their opinions concerning substantive topic areas ready for formal evidentiary hearings, topic areas requiring further analysis, and topic areas the parties have reached agreement upon but remain subject to disagreement.

Proposed by Calpine, the Los Esteros Critical Energy Facility would be a 180­megawatt, natural gas-fired, simple cycle power plant located on 15 acres in north San Jose at Elviso-Milpitas Road within Santa Clara County.

Members of the public and interested agencies are invited to participate in the hearing. Time will be reserved to allow members of the public to comment.
