In Oct 2002, the CCGT plant went online and the the county supplied KMP with significant tax benefits for a 12yr term after operation. In late 2010, Kinder Morgan sold the plant to DPC Juniper LLC, owned by some of the fomer developers. In Jan 2014, Consumers Power said they would buy the plant for $155mn. The plant has an unusual design termed "Orion" by KMP. This has six aerodertivateve machines and one frame GT, all with HRSGs ducted to two steamers. This allows dispatch at anything from about 40 MW (one LM6000) to the full plant capacity.
