Power Plant Projects Withdrawn By
Applicants Or Terminated By Commission

Please note: Background files and documents for withdrawn projects are removed from the main website about two months after the project had withdrawn. Withdrawn projects do not include projects that are postponed, suspended, or on hold. "Withdrawn" projects have formally asked that their application or license be ended. Copies of documents filed for these projects are available through the Commission's Dockets Unit. However, older applications filed before 2004 were not required to file electronic versions of their applications and their documents. Please contact our siting office at 916-654-4074 for assistance.
