Start Preamble April 22, 2009.

Take notice that on April 3, 2009, East Bay Municipal Utility District filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission a notice of self-certification of a facility as a qualifying cogeneration facility pursuant to 18 CFR 292.207(a) of the Commission's regulations.

The East Bay Municipal Utility District facility is a cogeneration facility. Start Printed Page 19556The Power Generation Station consists of three internal combustion engine/generators, each rated at 2.15 MW capacity for total capacity of 6.45 MW. The dual fuel engines operate primarily on biogas (from anaerobic digestion), however a small amount (<1% total fuel) is used for pre-combustion ignition. This location of the facility is located at 2020 Wake Avenue, Oakland, California.

Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) is the electric utility to which the facility interconnects. Generation is used primarily to meet on-site demand for wastewater treatment (distribution generation), however, any surplus is sold to PG&E. The Western Area Power Administration provides supplemental power to the wastewater plant, wheeled via the PG&E distribution system.

A notice of self-certification does not institute a proceeding regarding qualifying facility status; a notice of self-certification provides notice that the entity making the filing has determined the Facility meets the applicable criteria to be a qualifying facility. Any person seeking to challenge such qualifying facility status may do so by filing a motion pursuant to 18 CFR 292.207(d)(iii).

This filing is accessible on-line at, using the “eLibrary” link and is available for review in the Commission's Public Reference Room in Washington, DC.
