Document Description
The Three Mountain Power Project (TMPP), as proposed, will be a nominal 500-megawatt (MW), wet/dry cooled, natural gas-fired combined cycle power plant located in northeastern Shasta County, approximately 1 mile northeast of Burney, California, and 45 miles east of Redding, California. Ground water will be used for power plant cooling. The project will connect to Pacific Gas and Electric's (PG&E) 230-kilovolt (kV) network via the existing PG&E 230 kV Pit River hydro transmission line. To accommodate the TMPP power output, 60 lineal miles of reconductoring utilizing existing towers to the Round Mountain and Cottonwood substations is proposed.
