Dynegy, Nicor Announce Plant

Dynegy Inc. and Nicor have announced plans to jointly construct a 250 MW natural gas-fueled, peak-demand power plant in the Village of East Dundee, Ill. Construction began in late February, for the Rocky Road Power Plant to enter service this summer.

Dynegy and Nicor will each own a 50 percent interest in the plant through a special purpose partnership.

The plant will use gas delivered through the Nicor system as fuel to generate power. The merchant facility will support regional peak demand and sell power on the wholesale market throughout the country. p
