Tracy Combined Cycle

Tracy Combined Cycle

Tracy is a 335-megawatt, natural gas fueled, combined cycle plant located on a 40 acre tract near in Tracy, California, approximately 60 miles east of San Francisco. The plant was originally constructed in 2001 as a 170 MW simple cycle “peaking” plant. In 2011-2012, a major re-powering project was undertaken to convert Tracy to a combined cycle plant with the addition of a heat recovery steam generator and steam turbine. The plant went commercial as a combined cycle plant in November 2012. Electricity is produced from two combustion...
