The portfolio consists of the following four generation facilities:

  • Ravenswood (Queens, New York) – 2,480 megawatts, multiple-unit generating natural gas facility using dual fuel-capable steam turbine, combined-cycle and combustion turbine
  • Ironwood (Lebanon, Pennsylvania) – 778 megawatts, natural gas combined-cycle facility
  • Ocean State Power (Burrillville, Rhode Island) – 560 megawatts, natural gas combined-cycle facility
  • Kibby Wind (Franklin County, Maine) – 132 megawatts, wind farm

Paul Segal, chief executive officer of LS Power, said:

“LS Power’s experience owning and operating a diverse array of generating facilities throughout the Northeast uniquely positions us to acquire this portfolio of power plants. Each of these assets serves a distinct and crucial role to meet the demand needs in their respective Northeast markets. Moreover, these facilities are staffed by skilled personnel that maintain safe and efficient operations for their customers. We look forward to ensuring a smooth transition of ownership and responsible stewardship of these vital assets.”

The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2017, pending receipt of necessary regulatory approvals and third-party consents.
