Project Summary: On January 9, 2002, the Energy Commission deemed the Tesla Power Project (TPP), Application for Certification (AFC) data adequate. This begins the Energy CommissionŐs review process. TPP is seeking approval from the California Energy Commission (Energy Commission) to operate a nominal 1,120-megawatt natural gas-fired combined cycle power generating facility. The site is located on a 60-acre portion of a 160-acre parcel in Alameda County, approximately 0.5 miles north of the PG&E Tesla substation. The proposed Tesla Power Project would consist of four natural gas fired generators, and two steam turbine generators. The project will also include 0.8 miles of double-circuit 230-kV transmission line connected to the Tesla PG&E substation, a 24 inch 2.8 mile natural gas pipeline, and a 1.7-mile water line constructed along the Midway Road.
Public Participation: The public is encouraged to participate and provide comments as early in our process as possible.
