  9. 9. EXAMPLE NATIONAL PROJECT CPV Vaca Station is a highly efficient, 660 MW state-of-the-art combined cycle gas power plant. The proposed location is adjacent to the Easterly Waste Water Treatment Plant at the corner of Lewis/Fry Roads and will occupy about 25 acres generating enough electricity to power approximately 600,000 homes. At peak construction approximately 650 workers on site with strong efforts made to use local labor and materials to the greatest extent possible. Once operational, the plant staff size will be around 30 full-time well paying jobs. The Vacaville City Council signed an agreement with CPV to lease excess land for the proposed plant that could add $1.7 million to city coffers within 4 years. Vacaville will be the third community in Solano County to build peaker power plants if this happens.
  10. 10. 3 Questions  Each Community must know the answer to – What do you want to become? (Vision) – Where do you want that physical reality to occur? (Zoning, Entitlement, & “Shovel Ready”) – Who are your partners to make it happen? (Solano EDC, Solano Transportation Authority, BayBIO, Bay Area Council)
  11. 11. www.solanocounty.com/economicindex htwww
  12. 12. WHAT IS AN INDEX? The Solano County Index tells a story through indicators that measure the strength of our economy and the health of our community – highlighting challenges and providing an analytical foundation for leadership and decision making.
  13. 13. WHAT IS AN INDICATOR? Indicators are measurements that tell us how we are doing Good indicators do the following:  They are bellwethers that reflect fundamentals of long- term regional health;  They reflect the interests and concerns of the community;  They are statistically measurable on a frequent basis; and  They measure outcomes, rather than inputs.
  14. 14. Index & Indicator Connections
  15. 15. WHAT IS AN INDUSTRY CLUSTER?  An industry cluster is a geographic concentration of independent, internationally competitive firms in related industries, and includes a significant number of companies that sell their products and services outside the region.  Healthy, outward-oriented industry clusters are a critical prerequisite for a strong economy.
