Short Description
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.

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.
