Community Calendar Announcement

May 11, 2004

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.

The staff of the California Energy Commission will conduct a data response and issue resolution workshop for the proposed Los Esteros Critical Energy Facility Phase Two project on:

Beginning at 9 A.M.
California Energy Commission
Third Floor Conference Room
1516 Ninth Street
Sacramento, California
(Wheelchair Accessible)
Teleconference: 1-888-843-6163
Passcode: 49920

This workshop will provide the staff of the Energy Commission and interested parties an opportunity to discuss data responses in the areas of: air quality, biology, cultural resources, land use, public health, soil and water resources, traffic and transportation, transmission system engineering, visual resources and waste management.

Calpine's application for the Los Esteros Critical Energy Facility Phase Two project seeks two goals: recertification to continue operating Phase One, at 180 megawatts, past the 2005 expiration date of the current license and approval to convert the current simple-cycle facility to a more-efficient, combined-cycle power plant that would produce a total of 320 megawatts.

Members of the public and other interested agencies are invited to participate and provide comments. Those who wish further information about how to participate should contact the Commission's Public Adviser, Margret J. Kim, at (916) 654-4489, toll free in California at (800) 822-6228, or by email at:
