Congeneration Plant Replacement Project Phase 1

MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
Campus Support (under the UC Santa Cruz 2005 Long Rnage Development Plan)

Document Description
The Project would replace the UC Santa Cruz Campus' existing cogeneration equipment with a new, 4.2 megawatt natural gas-fueled combustion turbine generator. Waste heat from electricity generation would be used to pre-heat water for campus boilers. The equipment would be installed in a new, 4,250 sf building adjacent to the existing cogeneration plant. The existing cogeneration equipment would be decommissioned when the new equipment is operational. The project also includes upgrades to the Campus electrical system to accommodate the new facility. The project would require improvements to the PG&E natural gas distribution line serving the campus to provide adequate, reliable pressure in the gas line that serves the cogeneration plant. The Campus would obtain a timberland conversion permit and prepare a timber harvest plan.
