09 February 2000

San Jose-based Calpine Corporation [NYSE:CPN] and San Francisco-based Bechtel Enterprises announced that the California Energy Commission (CEC) has approved plans to construct the Delta Energy Center in Pittsburg, Calif. The $450 million, natural gas-fired facility will generate 880-megawatts of clean, reliable electricity for the greater Bay Area in mid-2002—in time to help offset anticipated system strains in northern California.
