On July 16, 2002, the staff of the California Energy Commission (Energy Commission) filed its draft analysis of the San Joaquin Valley Energy Center (SJVEC) Application for Certification. The staff's draft analysis, known as the Staff Assessment (SA), is available on our web site (see below), or you may call Matt Trask, the project manager, (see below) to have it mailed to you. The purpose of the workshop is to receive comments on staff's technical analysis. Topics to be discussed include Air Quality, Land Use, Noise, Visual Resources, and other topics contained in the SA.

Project Summary: Calpine Corporation proposes to develop the SJVEC, a nominal 1,060-megawatt, natural gas-fired, combined cycle power plant, in an industrial area on the southern edge of the City of San Joaquin. The plant would use approximately 7,000-acre-feet per year of reclaimed water for cooling purposes, supplied by the Fresno-Clovis Wastewater Treatment Facility via 21-miles of new pipeline. The City of San Joaquin would provide domestic water for drinking, showers, sinks and general sanitary purposes. Natural gas for the plant would be provided via 20 miles of new pipeline connected to PG&E's existing natural gas system near Interstate 5 (I-5). The project would interconnect with PG&E's electric transmission system at the Helm substation through a 0.25 mile transmission line.
