  NOTES:   DEFINITIONS:
  Bold text in table identifies a change from the previous report. Green Field - undeveloped site
  * Estimated on-line date if construction is not delayed. Brown Field - developed site
  ** Estimated on-line date if approved and constructed as proposed. Expansion - New unit at existing power plant site, no loss of existing generation
  Projects in italics are emergency siting projects. Repower - Modification of existing equipment
  Megawatts in [ ] are not included in totals. Replacement - Demolition of old plant and construction of new plant
  {1} 1002 MW replaced with 1200 MW for a net increase of 198 MW On Hold indicates the applicant has suspended work.
  {2} 339 MW replaced with 630 MW for a net increase of 291 MW Suspended indicates the committee has suspended the proceeding.
  {3} Calpine has received Commission approval to amend the project to add "duct firing," thereby increasing the total generating capacity from 510 to 590 MW.
  {4} Amendment Approved 2/2/2011.
