The staff workshop will focas on MMC Energy's December 7, 2007 data responses and work toward resolving project issues. MMC Energy has requested more time for responses to some of staffs data requests in the area of Transmission System Engineering as the Facilities Study and the California Independent System Operator's (CAISO's) new deliverability study' are currently being completed. Following the workshop, staff will consider the comments it receives, if necessary submit a second round of data requests, and publish a preliminary Staff Assessment containing a preliminary analysis of issues and recommendations for mitigation and conditions of certification.


On August 10, 2007, MMC Energy submitted an Application for Certification (AFC) to construct and operate the CVEUP, a simple cycle electrical power plant facility in the city of Chula Vista, San Diego County. The CVEUP would be a natural gas-fired !simple cycle power plant and would have a nominal capacity of 100 megawatts. Primary equipment for the generating facility would include two General Electric LM6000 combustion tubine currently serves the existing 44.5 MW Chula Vista Energy Project. If approved, the proposed project would be constructed on the northern portion of the existing 44.5 MW Chula Vista Energy Project site. As part of the proposed project, the existing 44.5 MW power plant would be decommissioned, dismantled, and removed.
