The Grayson Repowering Project (which includes 93 – 101MW of new gas-burning equipment) Partially Recirculated Draft Environmental Impact Report (PR-DEIR) comment period closed November 15. GWP will respond to comments and produce a final EIR. GWP will potentially present the project to the Sustainability and GWP Commissions in the first half of January, and to City Council in late January.
In the new year, your comments will be needed at City Council and to City Council and Commission Members, requesting a project with more clean energy, that continues our city’s momentum towards a 100% clean energy future. We will provide more information about how to submit comments closer to when the commissions and council will consider the project.
Joint GWP & Sustainability Commission presentation of Final Environmental Impact Report – TBD (projected mid-January 2022)
City Council – TBD (projected late-January 2022)
