Quick facts: This CHP was originally developed by Fulton Cogeneration Associates, a subsidiary of Coastal Naturla Gas, to produce electricity and supply steam to an adjacent Nestle chocolate plant. Funding was from $48.5mn Oswego Industrial Development Agency bond. Through Jul 1998, Fulton had a baseload power contract with Niagara Mohawk Power Corp, but the project’s off-take arrangements were then restructured, and the obligation to sell power to NiMo was terminated. In 2003, Nestle closed the candy plant. Coastal was subsequently acquired by El Paso Corp and in Sep 2004, El Paso sold the facility to Lion Capital Management. The Fulton project was by then the subject of long-running legal and tax disputes with Oswego County and then, in Jun 2007, Fulton was disconnected from the grid for technical reasons.
