A California Energy Commission Committee is reviewing an Application for Certification (AFC) by Walnut Creek Energy, LLC (WCE), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Edison Mission Energy (EME), to construct and operate a 500 megawatt (MW) simple-cycle power plant, the Walnut Creek Energy Park (WCEP), in the City of Industry.

The purpose of the evidentiary hearing is to establish the factual record upon which this case will be decided through the taking of oral, written, or documentary evidence from the official parties to the proceeding on the topics listed in the side bar.

The parties, public, and interested agencies are encouraged to attend and make comments on the topics to be discussed listed in the side bar. Written comments on these topics can be submitted to the Energy Commission, Docket Unit (05-AFC-2), 1516 - 9th Street, Sacramento, CA 95814, prior to June 27, 2007.

Whether made at the evidentiary hearing or submitted in writing, public comments will be entered into the record of the proceeding and may be used to supplement or explain the evidence in the record. Public comments by themselves, however, are not sufficient to support a finding of fact or a decision on an issue.
