Palomar Energy Project Breaks Ground

LCG, July 23, 2004--With California's electricity demand setting new peak records, groundbreaking ceremonies were held for the Palomar Energy Project, a 550-megawatt power plant in Escondido, California. The plant is being built by Palomar Energy LLC, a subsidiary of Sempra Energy Resources. SDG&E, a regulated utility and subsidiary of Sempra Energy, will purchase and operate the plant upon completion, which is scheduled for mid-2006.

The natural gas-fired, combined cycle plant includes two combustion turbine-generators equipped with dry low combustors and evaporative inlet air coolers, two heat recovery steam generators equipped with duct burners, a steam turbine-generator and associated auxiliary systems and equipment. The project includes a new 230 kV switchyard connecting with an existing SDG&E electric transmission line located immediately adjacent to the project site.
