67 MW Capitol District Energy Center Cogeneration Associates (“CDECCA”) Power Plant

Red Rock Power Partners is pleased to announce the acquisition of the 67 MW Capitol District Energy Center Cogeneration Associates (“CDECCA”) Power Plant.  CDECCA is a natural gas fired combined cycle cogeneration plant located in downtown Hartford, Connecticut.  This power plant was owned by El Paso Merchant Energy (“El Paso”).

Red Rock Power Partners LLC entered into an exclusivity agreement with El Paso and subsequently partnered with Maxim Power Corp. of Calgary, Canada to finance the facility.  The transaction is subject to regulatory approval by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

CDECCA provides peaking power to the New England Power Market.  It also provides steam and chilled water to a major commercial customer and to the Hartford Capitol district heating network.

The prime mover is a General Electric Frame 6 B combustion turbine generator with a 22 MW Alsthom steam turbine generator.  Steam and chilled water are provided by centrifugal chillers and absorption chilling units driven by the wate exhaust gases from the combustion turbine generator.  The facility is dual fuel capable burning natural gas and No. 2 Fuel Oil as needed.

Red Rock seeks to increase its portfolio of power generating assets with a view to acquire additional assets in the North East and California power markets in 2006. Buz Barclay of Torys LLC provided legal counsel for the acquisition.

Red Rock is currently developing high efficiency power plants in urban environments in deregulated markets and is actively seeking opportunities to acquire power generation assets. Through its partnerships, the team aims to build a diverse portfolio of generating facilities.

Red Rock will selectively participate in asset or asset portfolio auctions conducted by sellers or their representatives. However, it prefers to structure custom transactions directly and exclusively with sellers and to date has closed six transactions in the negotiated transaction space.

Red Rock’s main interest is in power and/or thermal generating assets with equivalent production capability in excess of 50 MW. Red Rock is focused on “its backyard” on the East and West Coasts of the USA – we also look to expand into the Carribean islands.

Red Rock’s ideal portfolio will include a geographically dispersed asset base with both contracted and merchant facilities located in strong and growing energy markets.
