Preliminary Staff Assessment workshop for
Victorville hybrid power plant


Attention Editors:

What: Staff of the California Energy Commission will conduct a Preliminary Staff Assessment (PSA) workshop on the proposed Victorville 2 Solar-Gas Hybrid Power Plant project on:

When: TUESDAY, December 11, 2007, beginning at 10 a.m.

Where: Southern California Logistics Airport, Administration Office Building
18374 Phantom Street, Victorville, California (Wheelchair Accessible)

Why: The workshop will provide Energy Commission staff the opportunity to receive comments on its PSA of the project from the applicant, members of the public, local, state, and federal agencies. The comments will be considered in drafting the Final Staff Assessment. All topics of the PSA will be discussed with emphasis on air quality, biology, cultural resources, soil and water as well as traffic and transportation.

The 563-megawatt solar-gas hybrid Victorville Power Plant Project, as proposed, would require three areas that total 388 acres, located immediately north of the Southern California Logistics Airport (SCLA), the site of the former George Air Force Base. It is approximately 3.5 miles east of Highway 395 and approximately 0.5 mile west of the Mojave River. The power plant will provide electricity using a combination of natural gas and solar thermal energy.

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. Interested members of the public who are not able to attend the hearing may participate by calling, toll-free, 1-888-577-8993. The pass code is 41327. The conference leader is John Kessler.
