Document Description
The proposed project, consideration of a request by GWF Energy, LLC (project owner) for a partial cancellation of a Land Conservation Contract (a.k.a Williamson Act Contract). Specifically, the request involves a partial cancellation totaling 20 acres of land that is currently included under Land Conservation Contract No. 1853 and within Agricultural Preserve No. 712/83. The purpose of the cancellation is to allow the future construction of a power generation facility. GWF Energy LLC (GWF) is seeking approval of an Application for Certification (AFC) by the California Energy Commission for the construction and operation of the Henrietta Peaker Project (HPP). GWF proposes to build and operate a 91.4-net-megawatt (MW) (annual average conditions), natural-gas-fired, simple-cycle power plant, with a 70-kilovolt (kV) switchyard and approximately 550 feet of new 70-kV transmission line. The project also includes the installation of a water pipeline and natural gas line to serve the facility.
