AOPA, energy commissioner agree power plant poses hazardAOPA, energy commissioner agree power plant poses hazard

AOPA has long opposed construction of the Eastshore Energy Plant, which would be located adjacent to the downwind departure route for Runway 10R/28L at Hayward Executive, an important general aviation reliever airport for the San Francisco area.
