The Imperial County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday will consider adopting a resolution in support of one of the two power plants to be built and operated in the Mexicali area.
The board meeting is set for 9:30 a.m. at the county Administration Center, 940 W. Main St. in El Centro.
Supervisor Wally Leimgruber said this morning he will ask fellow board members to approve a resolution in support of San Diego-based Sempra Energy's efforts to build a power plant south of the border.
The other plant is being built by InterGen Energy of Boston.
Both companies have obtained permits from the Mexican government to build and operate the plants, which are expected to provide energy to about 600,000 homes in California.
Leimgruber said based on information provided by Sempra he is confident the company is including proper air-emission controls in the facility to assure air quality is not hurt.
