Application for Certification for the       )     RULING re: MOTION TO 
Metcalf Energy Center [Calpine              )     SHORTEN TIME
Corporation and Bechtel Enterprises, Inc.]  )
____________________________________________)


On June 14, 2000, Intervenor Coyote Valley Research Park filed a "Motion for an Order to Shorten Time" (Motion to Shorten) and a "Motion for an Order Directing Commission Staff to Prepare a Supplemental Preliminary Staff Assessment and an Order to Modify the Case Schedule" (Motion to Modify.)

These Motions are complementary in that their net effect is to seek reissuance of the Preliminary Staff Assessment (PSA) and modification of the case schedule. The Motion to Shorten, however, would have us reduce the typical response time of other parties to the Motion to Modify from fifteen (15) to five (5) days. We deny this Motion in all respects. We believe the relief sought is moot in light of a forthcoming Status Conference which we are in the process of scheduling, and also would impose an undue burden upon other parties who are in the midst of a currently occurring series of public workshops.

We will establish a date for filing of responses to the Motion to Modify in the Notice scheduling the forthcoming Status Conference.



Date On Line: June 15,2000
