SUMMARY

On May 4, 2001 the Modesto Irrigation District (MID) filed a Small Power Plant Exemption (SPPE) to request approval from the California Energy Commission to construct an 80-megawatt (MW) nominal natural gas-fired combined cycle generating facility. The project would be located on 2.5 acres of an overall 7 acre site with an existing 49.4 MW generating facility on Woodland Avenue, in Modesto, California, County of Stanislaus.

The 80-megawatt natural gas-fired combined cycle will consist of one GE LM6000 enhanced SPRINT combustion turbine generator and a single condensing steam turbine (STG). The project will use a convention drum-type heat recovery steam generator (HRSG), or a once through steam generator (OTSG) HRSG. Expansion of the existing switchyard will also include two new bays. Approximately 1.2 miles of new 69kV subtransmission line, approximately 6 miles of system reinforcements to an existing Pacific Gas & Electric natural gas supply line, and approximately 1 mile of new water line would be constructed as part of the proposed project.

The purpose of this agenda item is to request that the Commission to assign a Committee.
