Question of the Week: Power Plant Just North of Santee

Preliminary meetings are being held this month, so you may not know a whole lot about the proposed plant, but what do you think about it?

The California Energy Commission (CEC) met Friday afternoon to perform a , a power plant that would be located south of the near the Santee city limits. This was one of the first times the project applicant and City of San Diego employees met face-to-face to discuss the project.

According to the application for certification: "The project as described within the application comprises a nominal 100 megawatt natural gas‐fired peaking power facility... The site for the project was specifically chosen because of its close proximity to existing high voltage transmission lines and natural gas lines situated within the project site."

Solar!!!!!!! Not natural resources! City council is seated by idiots! Consider future! A solar panel on every Santee roof, creating a solar grid. Everyone benefits, except sdge. Sdge corruption is in council fascism

My question at this point is why do we need it? Our population is pretty stable at this time, Most of the land south and west of the landfill is open space parkland. I think we should be told more about who is asking for this power plant and for what reason. If there is a demonstrated need as the other two commenters have suggested this could be an opportunity to give serious consideration to solar energy.
