Community Calendar Announcement

March 4, 2005


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 to recertify the simple-cycle operation of the Los Esteros Critical Energy Facility will hold a public conference to discuss the Presiding MemberŐs Proposed Decision on:

MONDAY, MARCH 14, 2005
Beginning at 10 a.m.
California Energy Commission
Hearing Room A
1516 Ninth Street
Sacramento, California
(Wheelchair Accessible)

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 Margret Kim, the Commission’s Public Adviser, at (916) 654-4489, toll free in California at (800) 822-6228, or by email at: pao@energy.state.ca.us.
