The Delta Energy Center is located in Pittsburg, California on a 20-acre site. It is a natural gas-fired, combined-cycle power plant, consisting of three combustion turbines, three heat recovery steam generators and one steam turbine. The construction of the plant was coordinated and managed by Calpine using a general contractor.
The Delta Energy Center provides electricity to the California power market. To provide mutual benefits to the Delta and Los Medanos Energy Centers, and to the local sanitation district, Calpine built a state-of-the-art recycled water facility. Recycled water is piped to the energy centers and used to circulate through the cooling towers to cool the exhaust steam from the steam turbine generator.
