Purpose

The Energy Commission staff is currently analyzing CPV Sentinel, LLC's AFC for the proposed development of the CPV Sentinel project. Staff published data requests on March 25, 2008 for the following technical areas: Biology, Cultural Resources, Socioeconomics, and Water Resources. Responses are due April 14, 2008. The staff workshop will focus on CPV Sentinel LLC's data responses and work toward resolving project issues. Following the workshop, staff will consider the comments it receives and initiate preparation of the Preliminary Staff Assessment (PSA) containing a preliminary analysis of the project's environmental impacts, including recommendations for mitigation and conditions of certification.

Background

On June 25, 2007, CPV Sentinel, LLC submitted an AFC to the Energy Commission to construct and operate a simple-cycle (peaking) power plant. The CPV Sentinel project is a proposed nominally rated 850 megawatt (MW) electrical generating facility that would encompass 37 acres of land situated within unincorporated Riverside County, California, adjacent to the Palm Springs northern city limits. On February 19, 2008, the Energy Commission received a supplement to the CPV Sentinel AFC. This supplemental filing differs from the original AFC in that it provides a revised water supply plan.
