Environmental Review

  Welcome to the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) web site for the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) review of the proposed sale of 12 Southern California Edison Company's fossil-fuel power plants. This site provides access to public documents and information relevant to the CEQA review.
 BACKGROUND As part of deregulating the electric industry, the CPUC has requested that Southern California Edison Company divest at least 50 percent of its fossil-fuel power plants in order to diversify the future electric market.
 PROJECT HISTORY Look here for past announcements and older on-line documents related to this action.
 MITIGATED NEGATIVE DECLARATION Because approval of this action is discretionary on the part of the CPUC, California law requires this CEQA review. On October 22, 1997 the Commission adopted (Commission Decision 97-10-059) a Mitigated Negative Declaration (dated October 21, 1997) as revised by the CPUC Energy Division in response to comments received and a Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program. This decision, the Mitigated Negative Declaration and related documents are viewable on-line or can be downloaded from this site. A summary letter of this action may be viewed here.

Print copies are available upon request (see address below).
