Community Calendar Announcement

January 2, 2003

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 conference.

The Committee overseeing the Application for Certification for the proposed El Segundo Power Redevelopment Project will hold a pre-hearing conference as follows:

TUESDAY, JANUARY 7, 2003
Beginning at 10 a.m.
El Segundo Public Library
Matsui International Meeting Room
111 West Mariposa Ave.
El Segundo, California
(Wheelchair Accessible)

This conference will provide the Committee an opportunity to assess the applicant's readiness for evidentiary hearings, identify areas of agreement and dispute, and discuss procedures for the evidentiary hearing.

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

Members of the public and interested agencies are invited to participate in the conference. Time will be reserved to allow members of the public to comment. Those who wish further information about how to participate should contact Roberta Mendonca, the Commission's Public Adviser, at (916) 654-4489, toll free in California at (800) 822-6228, or by e-mail at [pao@energy.state.ca.us].
