January 30, 2013 (San Diego) – The CPUC is holding a Public Forum on the Quail Brush Power Plan along with two other proposed power plants in San Diego County on Feb. 1 at 6 p.m. at Al Bahr Temple/Shriner’s Auditorium, 5440 Kearny Mesa Rd., San Diego. The CPUC’s proposed decision will prevent the emission of over 900,000 annual tons of greenhouse gases by denying purchase power tolling agreements.
The three San Diego Power Plants include Quail Brush, Pio Pico Energy Center and Escondido Energy Center. According to the Environmental Health Coalition, “San Diegans would be saddled with at least $1.2 billion in construction and finance costs for Pio Pico and Quail Brush in exchange for 23 permanent jobs.”
Attendees can meet at 5:15 p.m. to rally before the forum.
