Southern Energy, Cleco to Build Louisiana Plant

LCG, Aug. 1, 2000--Southern Energy Inc., a unit of The Southern Co., said yesterday it and Louisiana's Cleco Corp. have agreed to jointly develop a 700 megawatt natural gas-fired power plant near Monroe, La. The project would be developed and owned on a 50-50 basis by a joint venture of subsidiaries of the two companies.

In the first phase of the project, the companies would install a single 150 megawatt natural gas-fueled turbine at a site about 12 miles north of Monroe. The turbine, to be used as a peaking unit, is expected to be available for operation by summer 2001.

The peaker would be followed by a 550 megawatt combined-cycle unit that would enter commercial operation as a baseload plant in the summer of 2002. This unit would consist of two natural gas-fueled turbines generating electricity and feeding waste heat to a steam turbine that also would generate electricity.

The companies said plans include the possibility of expanding the plant by converting the original peaking unit to a combined-cycle unit as early as 2004.
