Fortistar already owns and operates two other combined-cycle plants in New York: The 221-MW Lockport Energy Associates plant and the 55-MW North Tonawanda facility. These projects dispatch into NYISO Zone A and also use the GE Frame 6 turbines. Fortistar also owns a 6-MW landfill gas plant in Albany, New York.
