Otay Mesa Power Purchase Agreement Transmission Project Proposed by San Diego Gas and Electric (Application No. A.04-03-008)
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation

Document Description
According to the SDG&E, the project is proposed to accommodate increased capacity in the San Diego regional system provided by the Otay Mesa Generating Station, a 570-megawatt (MW) power plant currently under construction. SDG&E intends to enter into a 10-year contract with Calpine Corporation (Calpine) to purchase 570 MW of power from Calpine's Otay Mesa Power Plant. As primary infrastructure needed to connect Calpine's Otay Mesa Power Plant to SDG&E's transmission system, SDG&E proposes to construct a new 230 kilovolt (kV) electric transmission circuit that would connect the Otay Mesa Power Plant near SDG&E's existing Miguel Substation with both the existing Sycamore Canyon Substation and the existing Town Substation.
