Dynegy has partnered with Energy Capital Partners, a private equity firm, to purchase the U.S. power portfolio owned by French utility ENGIE.

The $3.3 billion acquisition includes 8,731 MW of generation in the ERCOT, PJM and ISO-New England markets.

The joint venture, named Atlas Power, has secured financing, related transaction fees and working capital, with $2.25 billion in committed debt facilities and $1.185 billion in equity commitments from its owners.
