The order of discussion topics has not yet been determined; please call the project manager, Susan Lee at (415) 955-4775, if you would like to know when certain topics are expected to be addressed.

Project Summary: Modesto Irrigation District (MID) proposes to construct and operate WGS2, a 80 MW, natural gas-fired, combined-cycle power plant. The proposed site is owned by MID and is a 2.5-acre portion of a 7-acre site, which includes an existing 49.4 megawatt (MW) generating facility. Since there is an existing facility on the site proposed for WGS2, natural gas, water and transmission lines already exist but will need to be upgraded to accommodate the proposed power plant.
