Project Summary: MID proposes to construct and operate a 95-megawatt (MW) generation plant called the Modesto Irrigation District Electric Generation Station (MEGS). The project is proposed to be located on a 12.25-acre site at South Stockton Avenue and Doak Boulevard in Ripon, California, in San Joaquin County. The 95-megawatt natural gas-fired simple cycle plant will consist of two General Electric LM 6000 SPRINT combustion turbines. Part of the proposed project includes the construction of approximately 0.25 miles of new 69-kV sub-transmission line and fiber optic cable, approximately 0.25 miles of new eight-inch natural gas supply line, and water supply and wastewater tap lines into the existing City of Ripon lines located in South Stockton Avenue.
