Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E), co-owner of the Gateway Power Plant Unit 8 Project, located north of the City of Antioch in Gateway County, has submitted a petition to change the ownership of the Gateway Power Plant Unit 8 by removing current co-owner, Mirant Delta, LLC (Mirant), as an owner and change the name of the project to the Gateway Generating Station.
Staff has reviewed the petition and finds that it complies with the requirements of Title 20 of the California Code of Regulations, Section 1769, and recommends approval of the proposed change of ownership and project name.
As mandated by Title 20, section 1769(b) of the California Code of Regulations, the Energy Commission may only approve project modifications if specific findings are met. Following staff's review of the proposed amendment, Energy Commission staff recommends approval based on the following findings:
- There will be no significant changes in the operational relationship between the owner and operator, as PG&E will remain the operator of the project and will now be the sole owner
- PG&E has provided a statement, consistent with the requirements of Title 20, Section 1707, identifying itself as the responsible party for compliance with the conditions of certification
- The petition satisfies the requirements for a Change of Ownership, as PG&E provided a statement that it understands and agrees to comply with the Conditions of Certification for Order 06-0719-4.
CONCLUSION AND ORDER
The California Energy Commission hereby adopts the staff's recommendation and approves the change in ownership clarifying that PG&E is now the sole owner of Gateway Power Plant Unit 8 with the removal of Mirant Delta, LLC as a co-owner, and the name change of the project to the Gateway Generating Station.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
