TRACY PEAKER PLANT PROJECT

The California Energy Commission’s Public Adviser encourages members of the public to participate in upcoming workshops and hearings pertaining to the proposed 169 megawatt (MW) Tracy Peaker Plant Project located southwest of the City of Tracy, in western San Joaquin County and approximately 20 miles southwest of Stockton. The property is bounded by the Delta-Mendota Canal to the southwest, agricultural property to the south and east, and the Union Pacific Railroad to the north.

On August 3, 2001, GWF Energy, LLC submitted an Application for Certification (AFC) to the California Energy Commission to approve the proposed plant.

The California Energy Commission’s responsibilities are similar to those of the lead agency under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The Energy Commission’s certification process will carefully examine public health and safety, environmental impacts and engineering aspects of proposed power plants and all related facilities such as electric transmission lines, natural gas, water pipelines and roads. The Commission’s process will be completed over the next four months.

To receive notice of all workshops and hearings pertaining to the Tracy Peaker Project, you must request to be placed on a project mailing list. Contact the Public Adviser at one of the numbers listed below or enroll at the Commission's Web Site at www.energy.ca.gov/listservers

Public participation is an important component of the Energy Commission’s streamlined licensing process for the state’s energy facilities. Members of the public agencies, and other interested parties may participate in the Energy Commission’s licensing process by sending written comments to the Commission, by making oral comments at Commission hearings and workshops, or by filing a petition to intervene. An intervenor becomes a formal party to the proceedings; receives copies of documents filed in the case; and may conduct discovery, present evidence, and cross-examine witnesses.

Anyone wishing to receive information about the proposed Tracy Peaker Project hearings, workshops and/or how to participate in the Energy Commission’s licensing process should contact the Commission’s Public Adviser’s Office, toll-free in California at (800) 822-6228, in Sacramento at (916) 654-4489; or e-mail PAO@energy.state.ca.us
