Chambers

Carney's Point, New Jersey

Chambers Cogeneration, LP owns the 261 MW net, pulverized coal-fired facility located in southwest New Jersey. Atlantic Power indirectly owns a 40% interest in the facility, which began commercial operation in 1994. Energy Investors Fund indirectly owns the remaining interest in the facility.

Chambers Cogeneration is one of the cleanest coal burning facilities in the US, with state of the art emissions control equipment designed to remove SOx, NOx, and particulates, as well as heavy metals such as mercury. The facility was the first commercial-scale pulverized coal facility in the U.S. to use selective catalytic reduction technology.

The facility sells the majority of its generating capacity and electrical output to Atlantic City Electric (ACE), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Pepco Holdings, under a long-term power purchase agreement expiring in 2024. Chambers Cogeneration also sells electricity and steam to the adjacent DuPont Chambers Works facility pursuant to a long-term contract expiring in 2024. Capacity and energy not sold to DuPont or under the ACE PPA is sold at market prices under a separate Power Sales Agreement with ACE that is renewed annually and currently expires in December 2024.
