FYI: Quail Brush Power Plant

Wednesday, April 4, 2012

The Santee City Council on March 28 unanimously endorsed a resolution opposing plans to build a 100-megawatt, natural gas fired power plant in San Diego near Santee’s western boundary. The project, known as the Quail Brush Power Plant, is proposed for 10 acres along the road leading to the Sycamore Canyon landfill. 
A group of local residents has organized under the name Stop the Santee Power Plant. Extensive discussion about the project can be viewed at the group’s website: stopthesanteepowerplant.org

Before it can move forward, the project must be granted a licence from the California Energy Commission, and the site would have to be rezoned by the San Diego Planning Commission from open space to industrial. Licensing documents filed with the California Energy Commission are available online here.
