Byron Airport in relation to both proposed power plants

August 2010
Power trade has its critics
Some feel S.J. getting bad end of energy plant deal

TRACY – A natural gas power plant proposed for just outside San Joaquin County would be justified in part by reductions in pollution from a facility in Santa Clara, far from the smoggy Valley.The 200-megawatt “peaker” plant, meant to help satisfy California’s peak energy demands, could emit up to 46 tons per year of smog-forming chemicals, according to a report released this week.To offset that pollution, developers of the Mariposa Energy Project would obtain credits from a facility which has decreased its own emissions – a kind of trade.
Editor’s Note: Here is a good opportunity to read about the power plant industry’s back room deals to pollute the air for their profit.
