Emera Sells 3 New England Gas-Fired Plants for $590M

Emera Inc., an energy services company headquartered in Halifax, Nova Scotia, has just signed a deal to sell three natural gas-fired electric plants that it owns in New England to investment firm Carlyle Group for $590 million. The three plants–Bridgeport Energy, Tiverton Power and Rumford Power–collectively generate 1,100 megawatts of electricity. We’re always interested in such transactions because of the potential to sell Marcellus/Utica gas to feed the plants. The Carlyle Group owns a number of assets in the M-U region, perhaps most prominently the Philadelphia Energy Solutions (PES) refinery.
