Vacaville council to consider energy plant lease

By From page A3 | November 13, 2012

VACAVILLE — The city is expected to extend the lease agreement with CPV Vacaville, an energy company that is working its way through state regulations to build an electrical generation facility near the Easterly Wastewater Treatment plant in Elmira.

The city was approached by CPV in 2007 to build a natural gas-fired, 500-megawatt electrical generating facility on 25 acres at the treatment plant.

CPV is working to get licensed by the California Energy Commission, a process that takes years and includes an environmental review, according to a report to the Vacaville City Council by Interim Facilities Director Royce Cunningham.

The current lease agreement will expire Dec. 17. CPV wants to extend the lease another five years. If the facility is built, Vacaville could see a $3.3 million boost in its income, according to Cunningham’s report.

The Vacaville City Council will vote on the proposed extension when it meets at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Vacaville City Council chamber at 650 Merchant St.
