The Energy Commission Staff is currently analyzing Eastshore Energy, LLC's Application for Certification (AFC) for the proposed development of the Eastshore Energy Center. Staff published Data Requests on December 15, 2006 for the following technical areas: air quality, biological resources, cultural resources, geology, paleontology, public health, soil and water resources, transmission system engineering, visual resources, and worker safety and fire protection. The staff workshop will focus on Eastshore Energy's Data Responses and work toward resolving project issues. Following the workshop, staff will consider the comments it receives and will publish a Preliminary Staff Assessment containing preliminary recommendations on the proposed project.


On September 22, 2006, Eastshore Energy, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tierra Energy, submitted an AFC to construct and operate a nominal 115.5 megawatt (MW) natural gas-fired simple-cycle power plant, the Eastshore Energy Center, in the City of Hayward. The proposed project site is located at 25101 Clawiter Road in the City of Hayward, Alameda County, in an area zoned for industrial uses. The project site is a 6.22-acre parcel owned by Eastshore Energy. The Energy Commission is responsible for reviewing and ultimately approving or denying all applications for thermal electric power plants, with a capacity of 50 MW and greater, proposed for construction in California. On November 8, 2006, the Energy Commission accepted the AFC as complete, which initiated the Energy Commission staff's independent review of the proposed project.
