pao@energy.state.ca.us

The Energy Commission's Public Adviser, Margret J. Kim, will be present to explain the Commission's power plant review process and assist those interested in participating.

The Roseville Energy Park is not the same power plant project for which Enron filed an application with the Energy Commission in 2001 and then withdrew in November 2002. The city of Roseville's municipal utility, Roseville Electric, has filed an Application For Certification for a natural gas-fired, combined-cycle power plant and on-site switchyard. As proposed, the facility would produce 120 megawatts, with the ability to generate as much as 160 megawatts when the summertime demand for electricity is the highest.

The project site is on 12 acres, which is owned by the city, adjacent to the north of the Pleasant Grove Wastewater Treatment Plant

More information about the project is available on the Energy Commission's website at:
