"We are pleased to assume ownership of this portfolio of power plants," said Paul Segal, chief executive officer of LS Power. "The quality of the assets, the outstanding operational track record of the facilities and the skilled plant personnel were all important factors in our decision. We are committed to making this a smooth transition for the dedicated professionals operating these facilities and their communities. These projects have been reliably serving wholesale power customers in the Southeast for a number of years and we look forward to continuing to provide value for our growing base of customers."

The transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of 2014, pending receipt of necessary regulatory approvals and third-party consents.
