Bayou Cove Plant To Start for Summer Peaking Season

LCG, June 20, 2002--A new, gas-fired peaking plant near Jennings, Louisiana is expected to begin producing power in July.

The Bayou Cove plant, consisting of four combustion turbines, will have half of its planned 320-MW capacity online this summer. The remaining portion will follow at an as-yet unspecified date.
