“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,” said Paul Segal, chief executive officer of LS Power. “Each of these assets serves a distinct and crucial role to meet the demand needs in their respective Northeast markets.”
The purchase is slated to close in the first quarter of 2017.
