Project Summary: Pastoria Energy Facility, LLC is proposing to construct and operate a 750 megawatt (MW), natural gas-fired, combined cycle, electric generating power plant in Kern County. The plant is proposed to be built approximately 30 miles south of Bakersfield on the Tejon Ranch at the base of the Tehachapi Mountains. The project will require construction of an 11.7 foot natural gas pipeline, and a 1.4 mile, 230 kilovolt (kV) transmission line that will interconnect with Southern California Edison's (SCE) transmission system. The project's water needs will be supplied from Wheeler Ridge-Maricopa Water Storage District, which serves water from the California Aqueduct and from groundwater basins. The project will use a zero liquid discharge system to treat all wastewater with the exception of sanitary and stormwater.
