07:01 EDTDYN, DUKDynegy to acquire assets from Duke Energy and Energy Capital Partners
Dynegy (DYN) has signed two separate definitive sets of agreements to acquire the ownership interests in certain Midwest generation assets from Duke Energy (DUK) and EquiPower Resources Corp and Brayton Point Holdings, LLC from ECP. The Duke portfolio includes its retail business and ownership interests in the following plants: Killen, Stuart, Conesville, Miami Fort, Zimmer, Hanging Rock, Washington, Fayette, Lee and Dicks Creek. The ECP assets include these generating facilities: Milford, Lake Road, Dighton, Masspower, Liberty, Elwood, Richland, Stryker, Kincaid and Brayton Point. Upon closing both transactions, Dynegy will own nearly 26,000 megawatts of generating capacity nationally and provide retail electricity to residents and businesses in Illinois, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Michigan. Dynegy has committed financing in place for both the liquidity facilities and the transaction purchase prices and expects to access the capital markets in advance of closing to raise the permanent financing for the transactions. Dynegy Inc. intends to issue approximately $5 billion in new unsecured bonds and $1.25 billion in equity and equity-linked securities. Included in the equity figure is $200 million of Dynegy common stock that will be issued to ECP as part of the transaction consideration at closing. To support the collateral and liquidity needs of the combined enterprise, the Company has secured two incremental corporate-level revolving credit facilities totaling $950 million, bringing total revolver capacity at Dynegy Inc. to $1.425 billion. Additionally, approximately $300 million in working capital and cash collateral postings will be transferred to Dynegy with the acquired portfolios at closing. The purchase price is $2.8 billion for Duke assets and $3.45 billion for ECP assets. The transaction’s financing structure is consistent with the Company’s focus on balance sheet management, value-creating capital allocation, and sufficient liquidity to weather changes in commodity markets. The new assets will be incorporated into Dynegy’s existing first lien structure to support the Company’s hedging and collateral management programs.

08:04 EDTDUKDuke Energy to retire Asheville coal-fired power plant in four to five years
Duke Energy announced plans to retire its Asheville, N.C., coal-fired power plant in four to five years and modernize its generation and transmission system in western North Carolina and upstate South Carolina. The plan's major components include retiring the 376-megawatt Asheville coal power plant, investing approximately $750M to build a 650-megawatt natural gas-fired power plant, and installing solar generation at the site – one of the first combinations of its kind. The plan includes investing approximately $320M to build a transmission substation near Campobello, S.C., and connect it to the Asheville power plant with a new approximately 40-mile, 230-kiloVolt transmission line. It also includes upgrading and rebuilding additional electrical infrastructure such as transmission lines and distribution substations. Carbon dioxide emissions will be reduced by about 60 percent, on a per-megawatt hour basis, due to the efficiency of the new gas plant and the fact that natural gas burns more cleanly than coal. The new gas plant also will help reduce carbon dioxide emissions across Duke Energy's Carolinas power plant fleet. Closing the Asheville coal plant and building a gas plant will make it unnecessary to invest in 126 megawatts of oil-fired generation units, to meet peak demand, and other capital investments that were planned for 2019. The power plant and electric transmission projects will create a peak construction workforce of about 800 jobs in the 2017-2019 timeframe, and generate significant local property tax revenues when brought in-service. Based on current Buncombe County tax rates, property taxes from the gas power plant are estimated to increase between 35 and 40 percent after the site is modernized.
