ALLENTOWN, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Energy Power Partners (EPP), a renewable energy-focused private market firm, announced today that it has completed its acquisition of LES Project Holdings, LLC (LESPH) from affiliates of Aria Energy.
LESPH consists of a portfolio of 16 operating landfill gas-to-energy projects in Michigan, New Jersey, Florida, California, Utah, North Carolina and Virginia, with a total of 90 megawatts of nameplate generating capacity. The projects sell renewable electricity to investment grade utilities under long-term contracts. The operating team managing the LESPH assets has transitioned to EPP’s operating affiliate, EPP Service Company, LLC, as part of the transaction.
EPP developed, owns and operates a microgrid facility that supports The Authority’s (formerly the Cumberland County Improvement Authority) economic and sustainability objectives through a combination of renewable energy, cogeneration, landfill leachate evaporation, and electrical infrastructure assets.
EPP acquired and redeveloped the Eastern landfill gas-to-energy project, formed a public-private partnership with Baltimore County, and now provides the County with a reliable renewable energy supply fueled by the landfill’s captured methane.
EPP and Camden County partnered for a fourth time to turn otherwise unusable land into a renewable energy generation resource, adding a solar project to the capped portion of the Pennsauken Sanitary Landfill.
