Project Summary: The Southern California Public Power Authority filed an Application for Certification (AFC) for the Magnolia Power Plant Project seeking approval from the California Energy Commission to construct and operate a 250 megawatt (MW) natural gas-fired, combined cycle power generating facility. The applicant intends to locate the project on a 16-acre site in the City of Burbank at 164 West Magnolia Boulevard at the existing Magnolia Power Station. All of the auxiliary facilities for the project, such as water supply and disposal systems, site access, fuel supply, and facilities to connect electrical output to the grid are already in place at the existing facility. Site improvements will include demolition of some of the older power generating and fuel storage facilities.
