NCPA LODI POWER PLANT, "Resource 500"
Frank Cady immediately approached Nancy Cardenas to remove the Phase II Lodi project Agreement from the Agenda after he saw KWH member, Eileen Spencer in attendance.
Frank Cady, after the close of the meeting, quickly stated, "The Phase II Agreement has not been finalized by NCPA. This project has not been built yet and is a 250 MW project". It was said in an act of desperation.
Sorry, Frank, you were already busted............................
NCPA (CVP,Corp) owns a small 50 MW "peaker plant" (built around the late 1980's) that sits near the City of Lodi's waste water treatment facility between Highway 12 and Highway 5. This facility is a used only for peak power, otherwise it remains unused. There is a PGE gas main near this 50 MW facility also.
The City of Lodi is a NCPA member and voted to participate in the "proposed" project, but reports no activity other than a "proposed" agreement to lease the land to NCPA should they decide to build a larger facility on this site. The proposed facility (gas-fired power plant) has never moved forward due to previous hurdles, some say "unsurpassable" hurdles. The project appears not to be "cost effective".
Where have we heard that before: NCPA co-generation plant, Arrowrock Hydro Project...all Cady promoted projects.
NO FIVE YEAR OLD 525 MW FACILITY EXISTS IN LODI
Frank Cady and Jaimee Richey committed fraud on the LMUD Board and ratepayers. If Jaimee Richey has invoiced LMUD for any work on this fraud, she should return the money and immediately withdraw from representing LMUD. Frank Cady should be terminated. The District Attorney should be advised of this fraud.
Frank Cady has brought phony projects to this Board before and even convinced this Board of Directors to purchase a power plant that didn't exist. The Arrowrock scandal. The ONLY ONES THAT HAVE EVER PROFITED FROM THESE BOGUS PROJECTS ARE THE ATTORNEYS. When does it stop ?
Frankly speaking, the Ratepayers get screwed every time.
There is no "hydro electric facility" at the Arrowrock Dam.
This was a Fraud. Someone should have gone to JAIL.
