Community Calendar Announcement

September 16, 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.

Energy Commission staff will conduct a Preliminary Staff Assessment workshop to discuss the proposed Palomar Energy Project as follows:

3 p.m. - 5 p.m. & 6 p.m. - 10 p.m.
City of Escondido

The purpose of this workshop is to receive comments on the recently released Preliminary Staff Assessment. If necessary, these comments will be used to revise the Preliminary Staff Assessment and be incorporated into the Final Staff Assessment.

The Palomar Energy Project, proposed by Sempra Energy Resources, would be a 500-megawatt, natural gas-fired, combined cycle facility located on a 20-acre site within the Escondido Research and Tecnology Center industrial park.

Members of the public will have the opportunity to comment and ask questions during the workshop.
