Page 4.P-2 OSEC-398[See page 5-359 for the original comment] REVISE the final paragraph as follows:
Specific historical energy usage was not available for all existing uses on the Project Site. To provide an estimate of this usage, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) greenhouse gas model BGM (Version 1.1.9 Beta) was used to estimate annual electricity and natural gas usage based on industrial land uses at the Project Site and their square footage. Based on this model, it is estimated that 1,784.6 megawatt hours of electricity and 10,002.5 million British Thermal Units (Btu) of natural gas are used annually on the Project Site, exclusive of Recology’s operation. Recology has reported its 2010 baseline energy use as
6,300 megawatt hours of electricity and 400,000 cubic feet of natural gas (406 million Btu) annually (Arup, 2010). Thus, total current energy usage within the Baylands is estimated to be 8,084.6 megawatt hours of electricity and 10,408.5 million British Thermal Units (Btu) of natural gas.

Executive Order S-14-08 Executive Order S-14-08, signed by then-Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2008, established a Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) target for California that requires all retail sellers of electricity to serve 33 percent of their load with renewable energy by 2020.
Page 4.P-8 OSEC-385 [See page 5-357 for the original comment] REVISE the first paragraph as follows:
In November 2008, Governor Schwarzenegger signed Executive Order S- 14-08, which
raises California’s renewable energy goals to requires retail sellers of electricity to serve 33 percent of their electrical load by 2020 from renewable energy sources. This enhanced target is intended to help California meet statewide greenhouse gas emission reduction targets (refer to Section III.S). This has been reiterated by California Executive Order S-
