Hybrid gas-fired plant license approval recommended

The California Energy Commission (CEC) recommended approving a license for the planned 570 MW natural gas-fired Palmdale Hybrid Power Project in Palmdale, Calif.

The CEC released the presiding member's proposed decision, which contained the project's detailed environmental impact assessment required by the California Environmental Quality Act. The recommendation is not a final decision on the project.

The planned project will use natural gas-fired combined-cycle generating equipment integrated with solar thermal generating equipment.

The CEC released the document for 30 days of public comment before bringing the proposed decision to the full Commission. If approved, commercial operation is expected by summer of 2013.
