NRG Energy, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Northern States Power,
said it has completed the acquisition of Arthur Kill Station and
the Astoria Gas Turbine Sites totaling 1,456 MW of generating
capacity from Consolidated Edison Co. of New York The 842-MW Arthur
Kill Generating Station, located on Staten Island, includes two
steam generating units designed to burn gas and oil, as well as a
"black start" gas turbine. The 614-MW Astoria Gas Turbine Sites,
located in Queens, consist of 20 gas turbines, grouped into 11
units. NRG holds 100% interest in the projects.

acquisition of the Dunkirk and Huntley generating stations from
Niagara Mohawk Power. NRG plans to complete the acquisition of
another Niagara Mohawk plant, the 1,700 MW Oswego Generating

bring NRG net equity ownership of more than 5,000 MW in the
Northeast United States.
