The Sacramento Financing Authority’s Procter and Gamble Power Plant (PGPP) is located at 5000 83rd Street, Sacramento, Sacramento County.
PGPP is a 171-megawatt cogeneration facility consisting of two General Electric (GE) LM6000 SPRINT combined-cycle gas turbines, Units 1 and 2, which produce electricity and steam which is used to power a steam turbine for additional electricity production, as well as to supply the adjacent Procter & Gamble (P&G) facility with steam for its production needs. To support its steam production requirements, PGPP also has two Auxiliary Boilers 1A and 1B. In addition to the two combined-cycle units, the facility also includes a simple-cycle gas turbine for peak power production.
PGPP’s existing steam supply contract with P&G requires it to maintain two separate steam generation sources in service at all times. The purpose of auxiliary boilers is to provide sufficient steam and steam backup capacity for the P&G facility processes such that PGPP would not have to run at least one of its combined-cycle turbines at all times.
In July 2021, the project owner was changed from the Sacramento Cogeneration Authority to the Sacramento Municipal Utility District Financing Authority and the name of the project changed from Procter and Gamble Cogeneration Project to Procter and Gamble Power Plant.
Power Plant Certification and Exemption Processes
As required by the Warren-Alquist Act, the Energy Commission monitors Commission-certified energy projects throughout construction, operation, and closure to ensure compliance with the conditions of certification imposed by the Commission’s Final Decision for approving the projects.
