Calpine Resurrects Plans to Build Generating Station in Bay Area

LCG, October 11, 2005--Calpine Corporation (Calpine) is resurrecting its plans to develop a 600-MW, electric generating station near Hayward, California. The natural gas-fired project could be under construction by the summer 2007.

The energy crisis in California and Calpine's subsequent financial difficulties had placed the plant on the back-burner. Today, the landscape of California's energy market is being reshaped by growing demands for electricity and aging power plants.

To advance the project, known as the Russell City Energy Center, Calpine wants to trade land with the City of Hayward to gain property adjacent to the city's wastewater treatment plant that could supply treated waste-water for cooling. The proposed land trade is scheduled for review by the Hayward City Council this evening.

Calpine has a number of additional hurdles, such as financing and amending its 2002-approved license from the California Energy Commission (CEC).
