Project Description

The Midway Peaking Project (MPP) is located on a 5.6-acre site within Fresno County, located adjacent to the Panoche Hills and east of the San Benito County line. It is approximately 50 miles west of the City of Fresno and approximately 2.0 miles east of Interstate 5.

The project is a 120-megawatts, simple-cycle electric generating station, licensed as Starwood Power Project. The facility utilizes two FT8-3 Swift-Pac Combustion Turbine Generator units installed in a simple-cycle power plant arrangement. The gas turbines are equipped with a water injection system to reduce production of NOx, a selective catalytic reduction system with 19% aqueous ammonia to further reduce NOx emissions, and an oxidation catalyst to reduce carbon monoxide emissions.

On January 31, 2014, the California Energy Commission approved a project owner name change from Starwood Power-Midway, LLC to Midway Peaking LLC and the project name was changed from Starwood Power Project to Midway Peaking Project.
