LCG, Aug. 18, 2000--Constellation Power Source, an affiliate of Baltimore Gas & Electric Co., said on Thursday that an ad hoc subsidiary, Holland Energy LLC, will build a 650 megawatt merchant power plant costing $250 million in Holland Township, Ill.

Construction of the new plant is scheduled to begin next week with commercial operation expected in June 2002. Power from the facility, a combined-cycle plant with two gas turbines and one steam turbine, will be sold into the regional wholesale electricity market.

Shivery, the companys president said, adding "Constellation Power Source is looking for the best fit, where the availability of additional energy will meet the needs of the community, the market, and our company."

The company also recently announced plans to construct a 250 megawatt peaking plant near Bristol, Va., and a 300 megawatt natural gas-fired power plant in the University Park suburb of Chicago.
