Community Calendar Announcement

March 6, 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 hearings.

The Committee overseeing the Application for Certification for the proposed Los Esteros Critical Energy Facility will hold evidentiary hearings as follows:

MONDAY, MARCH 11, 2002
-and only if necessary-
Beginning at 10 a.m.
Berger Center, Building 2
1555 Berger Drive
San Jose, 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.

Proposed by Calpine, the Los Esteros Critical Energy Facility would be a 180Šmegawatt, 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 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 CommissionÕs Public Adviser, Roberta Mendonca, at (916) 654-4489, toll free at (800) 822-6228, or by e-mail at pao@energy.state.ca.us.
