The Energy Commission Staff is currently analyzing Pacific Gas and Electric Company's (PG&E's) Application for Certification (AFC) for the proposed development of the Humboldt Bay Repowering Project. Staff has served the applicant three sets of Data Requests dated December 8, 2006, January 11, 2007, and February 28, 2007. In the workshop scheduled for March 12, 2007, it is expected the primary topics of discussion will be in the technical areas of air quality and public health. The staff workshop will focus on information as provided in PG&E's Data Responses and work toward resolving project issues. Staff's Data Requests and PG&E's Responses can be found on the Energy Commission's website: http://www.energy.ca.gov/sitingcases/humboldt.
Following the workshop, staff will consider the comments it receives and will publish a Preliminary Staff Assessment containing its initial recommendations on the proposed project.
On September 29, 2006, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) submitted an AFC to construct and operate a nominal 163 megawatt (MW) power plant consisting of ten natural gas-fired reciprocating engine-generator units rated at 16.3 MW each. The proposed project site is located at 1000 King Salmon Avenue, approximately 3 miles south of the City of Eureka, Humboldt County. The facility would be located on 5.4 acres within a 143-acre parcel currently occupied by the existing PG&E Humboldt Bay Power Plant. 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 or greater, proposed for construction in California.
