    - State-of-the-art project provides reliable power for renewable energy expansion

    DESERT HOT SPRINGS, CALIF.-July 28, 2011-Competitive Power Ventures, Inc. (CPV), GE Energy Financial Services and Diamond Generating Corporation (DGC) announced today that they have broken ground on their co-owned, gas-fired 800-megawatt (MW) CPV Sentinel Energy Center in Riverside County, California.

    The $900 million CPV Sentinel power plant is located near Desert Hot Springs, five miles northwest of Palm Springs. It is expected to create 300 construction jobs with a $40 million payroll, along with nearly 400 indirect jobs with a $15 million payroll. The project will provide an estimated $30 million in sales tax during construction and an estimated $6.4 million in annual property taxes once operational in the summer of 2013.
    Joining the three companies for the groundbreaking was a bipartisan group headlined by Assemblymember V. Manuel Perez, the author of a California state law that was critical in the project’s development. Also in attendance was the co-author of the law, Assemblymember Brian Nestande, Riverside County Supervisor (and former State Senator) John Benoit, as well as long-time local supporters, including Riverside County Supervisor Marion Ashley and Desert Hot Springs Mayor Yvonne Parks along with City Councilmember’s from Desert Hot Springs and Palm Springs.

    “We are incredibly proud of the jobs our project is creating at this pivotal time in the recovery of the economy,” said Doug Egan, CEO of Competitive Power Ventures. “So many people and organizations contributed to making this project a success; it was truly an amazing effort between the public and private sector.”
    Gemma Power Systems California, Inc. is the general contractor overseeing construction of the project. CPV Sentinel will supply power to the Coachella Valley and Los Angeles Basin under a
    long-term power purchase agreement with Southern California Edison, an Edison International (NYSE: EIX) company. CPV will manage the project, while DGC will serve as the plant’s operator.

    “Today’s groundbreaking marks a great milestone made possible by CPV’s vision and persistence, GE’s energy project development partnership capabilities and technology, the cooperation of governments and our neighbors, and now the workers who will build this project that will facilitate the growth of intermittent energy sources like wind and solar in southern California,” said Alex Urquhart, president and CEO of GE Energy Financial Services.
    Using eight of GE’s efficient, quick-starting LMS100 gas turbines, the CPV Sentinel power plant will help prevent blackouts during extremely hot weather by providing peak power on demand. Given CPV Sentinel's close proximity to 600 MW of wind farms, the project also will support California in meeting its goal of generating 33 percent of its power from renewable sources by 2020 by facilitating the integration of wind and solar power into the electric grid. When it becomes operational, the project will be able to power approximately 640,000 homes.

    “With our headquarters in downtown Los Angeles, and our Indigo Energy Facility only a mile or so down the road from Sentinel, we have been a part of the local economy in Southern California for more than 2 decades,” noted DGC Senior Vice President Bo Buchynsky. “We especially appreciate having another project in our backyard, where we can continue to support the local economy and be part of Southern California’s energy future.”
    CPV, the managing member and developer, owns 25 percent of the project, while DGC and GE own 50 percent and 25 percent, respectively.

    CPV and partners close financing and commence construction on $900 Million Sentinel Power Project in Riverside County, California

    DESERT HOT SPRINGS, CALIFORNIA - May 31, 2011- Competitive Power Ventures, Inc. (CPV), GE Energy Financial Services and Diamond Generating Corporation (DGC), co-owners of the planned $900 million CPV Sentinel power plant, announced today that they have closed the largest project financing in the U.S. thermal power industry this year, for the facility to be built in Riverside County, Calif.

    The CPV Sentinel project is located near Desert Hot Springs, five miles northwest of Palm Springs. It is expected to create 300 construction jobs at peak with a $40 million payroll, along with nearly 400 indirect jobs with a $15 million payroll. The project will provide an estimated $30 million in sales tax during construction and an estimated $6.4 million in annual property taxes once operational.

    CPV, GE Energy Financial Services and DGC announced that 23 banks-working with lead arrangers MUFG, Royal Bank of Scotland, ING, Natixis and Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corp.-agreed to provide credit facilities of nearly $800 million for construction and other capital needs. With almost $2 billion of commitments received from lenders, interest in the project was so high that the syndicated loan was 2.4 times oversubscribed. Additional details of the financing were not disclosed.

    With all permits finalized and the debt financing in place, Gemma Power Systems California, Inc. is scheduled to start construction of the 800-megawatt (MW) project immediately, with CPV Sentinel scheduled to go into commercial operation in the summer of 2013.

    "This is a landmark announcement for CPV, and we are proud to partner with such an excellent team of industry leaders," said John Foster, executive vice president of Competitive Power Ventures. "The project's cutting-edge technology will help to modernize California's energy portfolio while meeting both current and future demands in the most environmentally sensitive manner possible."

    Complementing GE Energy Financial Services' backing of the plant, GE Energy signed an agreement to supply eight gas-fired LMS100 turbine-generators capable of reaching full load in 10 minutes. CPV Sentinel will help prevent blackouts during extremely hot weather by providing peak power on demand. Given CPV Sentinel's close proximity to 600 MW of wind farms, the project also will support California in meeting its goal of generating 33 percent of its power from renewable sources by 2020 by facilitating the integration of wind and solar power into the electric grid. California is requiring the largest addition of renewable generation of any U.S. state. When the wind doesn't blow or the sun doesn't shine, CPV Sentinel can backstop the lost generation.

    The highly efficient ecomagination-certified aeroderivative LMS100 gas turbine-generators helped CPV Sentinel meet environmental challenges and assisted in reducing carbon dioxide emissions. At the CPV Sentinel plant, the turbines are designed to operate at 43 percent simple-cycle efficiency, nearly 10 percent better than the next most efficient simple-cycle plant in California today.

    "With the help of GE's technology and financial backing, the CPV Sentinel plant's supply of consistent and reliable power on demand will facilitate the growth of intermittent energy sources like wind and solar that are plentiful in this area of southern California," said Darryl Wilson, vice president-aeroderivative gas turbines for GE Power & Water.

    The CPV Sentinel project will supply power to the Coachella Valley and Los Angeles Basin under a long-term agreement with Southern California Edison, an Edison International (NYSE: EIX) company, which needs additional capacity for grid reliability and renewable integration. CPV will manage the project while DGC will serve as the plant operator.

    "DGC is pleased that we will be a part of this important project in Southern California, helping to provide reliable electricity for the community in which we live and work and bringing much-needed economic development to the region," said DGC President Yasuyuki Asakura.

    CPV, the managing member and developer, owns 25 percent of the project, while DGC owns 50 percent and GE Energy Financial Services owns 25 percent.

    Woodbridge Energy Center Project One of Three Selected in New Jersey Energy Procurement Process

    Woodbridge Energy Center Project one of three selected in New Jersey Energy Procurement Process -

    Silver Spring, MD, -March 31, 2011 - Competitive Power Ventures, Inc. (CPV) announced today that its CPV Woodbridge Energy Center project has been selected by the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities to be one of three electric generating projects that will produce in-state power to help lower electric costs for New Jersey consumers who currently pay some of the highest rates in the country.

    The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (NJBPU) selection was undertaken as a result of legislation (P.L. 2011) that was signed into law by Governor Christie this past January. The legislation was proposed to address the high cost of electric rates caused by the need to import electric capacity to ensure that the needs of the New Jersey consumers and businesses could be met in all circumstances. The result of the legislation was that thirty-four parties proposed projects for consideration, to promote the construction of base load and mid-merit electric generation facilities for the benefit of New Jersey's electric consumers.

    "The Board's selection of our CPV Woodbridge Energy Center project is a validation of the hard work so many people have put into this project over the past two years," said CPV CEO Doug Egan. "Foremost, it is a tribute to the leadership and vision shown by officials at the local and state levels who-through hard work and diligence--have helped shape an outstanding project that will yield significant economic and environmental dividends to the people of New Jersey for decades to come."

    The Woodbridge Energy Center will be a 663MW combined cycle natural gas facility which will be powered by two General Electric 7FA turbines offering the latest in technology. The combined-cycle technology process has an increased efficiency that is almost double that of conventional technologies, while providing enhanced environmental benefits as well. The Woodbridge Energy Center will also use predominantly "grey water" from the nearby Middlesex County Utilities Authority for facility cooling needs. This "grey water" is water that would otherwise be discharged into the Raritan River. The project will be located in a Brownfield Redevelopment Area (BDA) and as part of the site remediation plan, the public will once again have access to the Raritan River for recreational purposes.

    Levitan and Associates, Inc. a market design, economics and power systems advisory firm assisted the NJBPU with the solicitation and evaluation process of the thirty-four proposals. After two rounds of elimination, Levitan said it chose the three finalists because they offer "substantial net economic benefits on an expected value basis over the relevant planning horizon to New Jersey's electric customers."

    "These benefits are primarily due to the expansion of direct employment for the duration of the associated construction phases of the projects and the new on-site permanent jobs associated with the operation and maintenance of the new generation facilities during their operating lives. In addition, employment and income are expected to increase due to the indirect impacts of increasing the demand for goods and services procured from New Jersey firms during the construction and operations phases, giving rise to what is known as an economic multiplier effect," Levitan continued.

    In explaining its decision, Levitan also pointed out that the three selected projects offer significant environmental benefits to New Jersey's electric customers including "the displacement of incumbent generation with the portfolio of cleaner, gas-fired generation resulting in lower net emissions of NOx, SO2, and mercury across the PJM region."

    With an expected online date of 2015, CPV must now complete the environmental permitting process before moving into a 30-month construction process. The company expects to be ready for construction by the summer of 2012. To find out more about the project, please visit www.cpvwoodbridge.com.

    CPV Nanticoke Energy Centre Issues Statement of Completion

    CPV Nanticoke Energy Centre Issues Statement of Completion -

    Clean energy facility poised to create 1200 construction jobs, regional economic activity and manufacturing base support, moving forward -

    Toronto, Ontario, March 24, 2011 - CPV Nanticoke Energy L.P. ("CPV") announced today that it has issued the Statement of Completion to the Ministry of Environment ("MOE") to confirm the completion of the Environmental Screening Process for the Nanticoke Energy Centre, a proposed 1,200 MW power generation facility located in Haldimand County, Ontario.

    The project has been under development since 2007 and could be in-service by 2015. With this notification to the MOE, CPV has completed the Environmental Screening Process as required in the Environmental Assessment Act (1998). This environmental review-a process which began in December 2007-is a major milestone for the project. Subject to receipt of other approvals and a power purchase contract from the Ontario Power Authority, CPV would proceed with construction of the facility.

    "We are very excited about issuing the Statement of Completion to the Ministry for our CPV Nanticoke Energy Centre," said CPV Chairman Doug Egan. "We are grateful to the many people who worked so diligently through this environmental review process to craft approaches and solutions that helped create a truly outstanding project. When constructed, CPV Nanticoke will be one of the most environmentally benign, technologically-advanced generating stations across Canada."

    The proposed CPV Nanticoke Energy Centre is a highly-efficient, combined-cycle ("two-on-one") natural gas-powered electric generating station proposed for 15 hectares (ha) of an 80 ha property in Haldimand County. The facility is designed to "ramp-up" and "ramp-down" quickly and efficiently to support power grid variations such as those inherent with wind and solar resources. The project is comprised of two 600 MW blocks of capacity. This means the project can be phased in with the first 600 MWs constructed immediately while allowing for expansion of the remaining 600 MW of capacity.

    The project has enjoyed widespread community support both for its outstanding environmental profile-it supports the phase out of coal-fired generation and expansion of renewable resources--and it creates significant economic opportunity for the region. CPV has worked closely with local governments, Six Nations of the Grand River, and Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nations to build strong local ties to maximize these benefits for the entire region.

    It is estimated the project will create 1200 construction jobs over a three-year period with the entire community seeing benefits through a significant increase in economic activity. With important local companies like Esso and U.S. Steel dependent upon reliable, efficiently priced electric power, the Nanticoke Energy Centre provides important energy infrastructure to retain and attract the types of manufacturing sector businesses on which the region is so dependent for jobs.

    "CPV's core mission is driven by the belief that visionary companies can be positive agents of change, both environmentally and economically, for the communities in which we operate," said Egan. "The Nanticoke Energy Centre is a perfect example of how this approach can create a win-win-win situation for all involved."

    CPV has been building a very active presence across Canada over the past five years. In addition to developing natural gas projects, CPV acquired a portfolio of wind development projects spanning seven provinces from Interwind (formerly known as SkyPower), a Toronto-based renewable development company. CPV's Canadian office is located in Toronto.

    The Ontario Ministry of the Environment is responsible for reviewing major electric generating projects such as CPV Nanticoke to ensure that the environment is not adversely affected by the facility. As required under the Environmental Assessment Act 1998, each completed Environmental Review Report focuses on site specific characteristics relevant to each proposal and provides for stakeholder engagement as an integral part of this process to ensure protection of human health and the natural environment. For more on the Environmental Assessment process, visit the Ministry's website at:
