The Calpine Plant is proposed for Northern Monterey County in the community of Pajaro. This 45-megawatt powerplant, if built, would be constructed in a redevelopment zone and in a flood plain. This plant would use significant amounts of water, even though the Pajaro area already suffers from serious overdraft and salt water intrusion.
LandWatch engages in the public process in a variety of ways. For this project, here is a list of our engagement strategies.
