Project Summary: On May 7, 1999, Duke Energy Moss Landing LLC filed an Application for Certification (AFC) seeking approval from the California Energy Commission (Energy Commission) to construct and operate the proposed 1060-megawatt (MW) Moss Landing Power Plant Project. The project is proposed to be located at the existing Moss Landing Power Plant site that has been operated by PG&E for about 50 years. This site is located at the intersection of Highway 1 and Dolan Road, east of the community of Moss Landing near the Moss Landing Harbor. The project, as proposed by Duke Energy, consists of replacing the existing electric power generation Units 1-5 (a total of 613 MWs built in the 1950s and shutdown in 1995) with two 530 MW, natural gas-fired, combined cycle units.
