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.

California Energy Commission staff will conduct a workshop to discuss the proposed El Segundo Power Redevelopment Project as follows:

WEDNESDAY, July 17, 2002
1 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Hyperion Treatment Plant
Ferguson Technical Support Facility, Room 116

12000 Vista Del Mar
Playa Del Rey, California

The workshop will provide an opportunity for staff to receive oral and written comments on alternative cooling options and other issues from the applicant, agencies, intervenors, and members of the public.

EL Segundo Power II LLC (ESP II), is seeking approval to replace the existing El Segundo Generating Station (ESGS) Units 1 and 2 natural gas-fired, combined cycle electric generation facility. ESGS Units 3 and 4 located adjacent to Units 1 and 2 will not be modified by this project. The new facility is expected to generate 630-megawatts (MW) under nominal conditions.

The public is encouraged to participate and will have the opportunity to provide comments and ask questions during the workshop.
