Project Summary: On December 30, 2003, Calpine filed an AFC (Docket No. 03-AFC-2) for LECEF. This AFC seeks a recertification for a license for continued operation of the current 180 megawatt natural gas-fired peaking power plant consisting of four simple-cycle combustion turbine generators and associated equipment ("Phase 1"). This AFC also seeks a license for the conversion of the facility to a combined-cycle operation which would result in 140 megawatts of additional capacity ("Phase 2"). The LECEF is located in northern Santa Clara County, near State Route 237 and Zanker Road.
