General Description of Project

The City of Roseville's electric department, Roseville Electric, owns and operates the Roseville Energy Park (REP). The REP is a natural gas-fired, combined-cycle electrical generating facility rated at a nominal net generating capacity of 120 to 125 megawatts (MW), with the ability to peak-fire to 160 MW nominal during summer design conditions.

The REP is located on a 12-acre site that lies within a 40-acre City of Roseville parcel, in Placer County. The project site is within the limits of the City of Roseville, adjacent to and north of the Pleasant Grove Waste Water Treatment Plant. The project site is owned by the City of Roseville. Surrounding land uses currently include ranching (agricultural grazing) and rural residential.

Please note: This proposed power plant is NOT THE SAME as the 500 megawatt project that was known as the Roseville Energy Facility, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Enron North America Corp. The Enron project application (docket # 01-AFC-14) was filed with the Energy Commission in August 2001 and then withdrawn by the applicant on November 19, 2002. Files for that project are not available on line because the project was withdrawn.

Energy Commission Facility Certification Process

The California Energy Commission is the lead agency (for licensing thermal power plants 50 megawatts and larger) under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and has a certified regulatory program under CEQA. Under its certified program, the Energy Commission is exempt from having to prepare an environmental impact report. Its certified program, however, does require environmental analysis of the project, including an analysis of alternatives and mitigation measures to minimize any significant adverse effect the project may have on the environment.
