• FirstEnergy to sell four Pennsylvania gas generating plants to LS Power

    FirstEnergy Corp said on Thursday it would sell four gas-generating plants in Pennsylvania and portion of a Virginia hydroelectric power station to a unit of LS Power Equity Partners III LP for about $925 million.

    The power stations, owned by FirstEnergy’s units, have a total capacity of 1,572 megawatts (MW).

    Akron, Ohio-based FirstEnergy’s move comes as it shifts its focus to more regulated markets by selling or deactivating assets in highly competitive and less regulated markets.

    FirstEnergy will own or control a total generating capacity of about 15,380 MW upon the closing of the deal. Carmelo Anthony Jersey
