[California Energy Commission Letterhead]


The Metcalf Energy Center project (MEC) is a nominal 600-megawatt combined cycle power plant located in the southernmost part of the City of San Jose, Santa Clara County. The project was certified by the California Energy Commission on September 24, 2001

Metcalf Energy Center, LLC, project owner, a subsidiary of Calpine Corporation, submitted a petition to Energy Commission staff on January 25, 2002, seeking approval to modify the project description as follows:

Pursuant to section 1769(a)(2), Title 20, California Code of Regulations, Energy Commission approval for the change is not required if Energy Commission staff determines: (1) That there is no possibility that the modification may have a significant effect on the environment, and (2) The modification will not result in a change or deletion of a condition of certification, or make changes that would cause the project not to comply with applicable laws, ordinances, regulations, or standards. Energy Commission staff have determined that the proposed reduction of pipeline length meets these criteria because:

Any person may file an objection to staff’s determination within 14 days of service of this notice on grounds that the change does not meet the criteria set forth in Section 1769(a)(2). If you have questions or wish to file an objection, please contact Steve Munro, Compliance Project Manager, at the address above, or call (916) 654-3936, Fax (916) 654-3882, or e-mail smunro@energy.state.ca.us. If no substantive objection is filed within 14 days of service of this notice, the requested change will be deemed approved and a description of the change will be placed in the project file.
