Constellation power plant set for L.A.

Constellation, of Baltimore, the energy supply subsidiary of Chicago-based Exelon Corp., said it has signed an agreement with Los Angeles’ city government to design, build and operate a 27-megawatt (MW) renewable energy power plant at L.A. Sanitation’s Hyperion Treatment Plant, one of the 10 largest sewage treatment facilities in the world.

The new power plant will cost approximately $130 million to construct.

It will use a renewable fuel produced by the plant’s sewage treatment process as its primary fuel source, supplying steam and electricity that will be used to operate Hyperion’s treatment processes.

Constellation will develop, construct and operate the power facility for 10 years, with an option to extend the agreement for five additional years.
