Orion power completes acquisition of Columbia Electric

As construction of the recently acquired power plants is completed over the next five years, Orion Power’s portfolio in the Mid-Atlantic and Mid- Western power markets will be increased by over 3,000 megawatts. This includes two power plants in construction totaling 1,068 megawatts, which will commence operations in 2001 and 2002. The acquisition encompasses state-of- the-art, natural gas-fired facilities under construction and development which provide a strategic balance for Orion Power’s existing asset base.
