Staff Assessment workshop on Chula Vista Energy Upgrade Project
Monday, May 12th
Staff of the California Energy Commission will conduct a Preliminary Staff Assessment (PSA) workshop on the proposed Chula Vista Energy Upgrade Project on:
Monday, May 12, 2008, 2pm to 5pm and from 6pm to 8pm (to recap the earlier session and open the workshop for public comment).
Otay Recreation Center, 3554 Main Street (at Albany Avenue) Chula Vista, California.
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, intervenors in the proceeding and local, state, and federal agencies. The comments will be considered in revising the PSA and drafting the Final Staff Assessment. All topics of the PSA will be discussed with emphasis on air quality, land use and public health.
The proposed 100-negawatt facility would replace the Chula Vista Power Plant currently located on a 3.8 acre parcel in the City of Chula Vista's Main Street industrial corridor and within the city's light industrial district. If approved, the plant would begin construction in the fall. Operation is expected to begin in the fall of 2009.
