The article focuses on Roseville suburb which is planning to issue $204 million in certificates of participation to finance a new natural gas-fired power plant. Roseville Electric, the city-owned utility, has provided power for local residents and businesses for the last 94 years, mainly through contracts with other agencies that generate and transmit electricity. The utility was inspired to build its own generation facility in the wake of California's 2001 power crisis, which pushed power prices high. Construction on the 125-megawatt facility, known as Roseville Energy Park, is scheduled to conclude by the spring of 2007.
