Community Calendar Announcement - Starwood Power Project


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:

The California Energy Commission Committee reviewing the Starwood Power Project Application for Certification will hold a pre-hearing conference on:

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2007
Beginning at 2 p.m.

California Energy Commission, 1516 Ninth Street
Hearing Room A (Wheelchair Accessible)
Sacramento, CA 95814

The conference will provide the Committee an opportunity to assess readiness for evidentiary hearings, identify areas of agreement and dispute, and discuss procedures. If no issues are contested, the Committee will immediately conduct an evidentiary hearing covering all potential impacts of the proposed power plant.

The proposed 120-megawatt simple-cycle power plant comprises two combustion turbine generators and associated equipment. It is designed as a peaking facility to meet electric generation load during high demand periods. The project would be situated on 5.6 acres within a 128-acre parcel owned by Starwood Power-Midway, LLC. approximately 2 miles northeast of the intersection of West Panoche Road and Interstate 5 in an unincorporated area of western Fresno County.

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 Commissions Public Adviser, at (916) 654-4489, toll free in California at (800) 822-6228, by FAX at (916) 654-4493, or by email at: pao@energy.state.ca.us

The Commission's website contains current information on the proposed project at:

Please contact me at (916) 654-4989 if you prefer to have your name removed from our list.

Sincerely,

Percy D. Della,
Information Officer
