Diesel Fuel: 4-8

4-8 What is the volume of diesel fuel to be stored? Is this the volume required for the amount of time that the plant will be allowed to run on diesel fuel? Can the storage volume be reduced with trucking to the site in instances when the diesel is to b

Approximately 2,000,000 gallons of ultra low sulfur diesel fuel (“ULSD”) will be stored at the site which will allow one generating unit to operate at base load for 72 hours during a curtailment of natural gas availability.  This volume was selected based on the reasonable worst case expected gas curtailment.  If a gas curtailment is anticipated to extend beyond 72 hours, delivery of ULSD by trucks will be required to operate the plant beyond the 72 hour time frame.
