Cricket Valley Gas Thermal IPP Project

In January 2018, JERA acquired the equity stake in Cricket Valley Energy Center, the operating company of a natural gas thermal power project in New York, U.S.A. through its wholly-owned subsidiary.

Cricket Valley Energy Center will construct a natural gas-fired combined cycle power generation plant with a power generation capacity of 1,100 MW, targeting commencement of commercial operations in 2020. The power produced will be sold on the wholesale electricity market in New York.
As the largest investor, we will be a lead contributor to drive the project forward utilizing our expertise in power plant construction and operational know-how accumulated through participation in the overseas IPP business.
