Multi-component project containing both historic and pre-historic elements. It is located in Pala San Diego. This project is for JPOWER and will consist of a new Power Station that will be placed directly onto the footprint of a historic orange grove. The other impacts will include water, natural gas, and energy lines that will be dug and laid between 10 and fifteen miles coming to the power plant. The power station location is approx. 4 miles from the Pala mission and the eastern boarder of the project lies within the Pala reservation.
On June 19, 2008, Orange Grove Energy, L.P. a limited partnership owned by J-Power USA Development Co., LTD through intermediate entities filed an Application for Certification (AFC) with the California Energy Commission for the construction and operation of the Orange Grove Project.
The project consists of a 96 megawatt (MW) simple-cycle electric generating plant and ancillary facilities to be located on unincorporated lands north of State Route (SR) 76 and east of Interstate (I) 15 in rural San Diego County, California.
The applicant, Orange Grove Energy (&JPOWER), is proposing the Project in response to a Request for Offers (RFO) by San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) for new generating resources to be built to support local reliability.
The Project was designed as a peaking facility to serve loads during peak demand.
The site for the project is on SDG&E-owned land and is located about five miles east of the City of Fallbrook and approximately two miles west of the community of Pala.
