Niagara Mohawk said the sellers will realize $815 million in cash, $134 million in interest and $88 million in decommissioning savings.

Constellation will get 82 percent of the 1,148 megawatt Nine Mile Point Unit 2 from its owners, Niagara Mohawk, New York State Electric & Gas Co., Rochester Gas & Electric Co. and Central Hudson Gas & Electric Corp.

The terms of the deal include power purchase agreements under which Constellation will sell 90 percent of the output of the two reactors back to the sellers for about 10 years at an average price of around $35 per megawatt-hour.
