Hill Top Energy Center Selected as the IJGlobal North American Power Deal of the Year 2019
E3 Consulting served as the Independent Engineer on IJGlobal’s North American Power Deal of the Year: Hill Top Energy Center for 2019. Referring to its status as the first “pure project bond financing of a quasi-merchant CCGT in PJM Interconnection,” IJGlobal pointed out that Hill Top was already notable because it cleared the PJM capacity in 2018 with a better-than-expected price.
Hill Top Energy Center is a new 619 MW combined-cycle natural gas-fired 1×1 combined cycle plant currently under construction in Greene County, Pennsylvania. The Project will utilize one General Electric (GE) 7HA.02 combustion turbine-generator unit, one heat recovery steam generator, and one steam turbine generator.
The E3 pre-finance team was led by Andy Hixson. Mike O’Dell is currently providing construction monitoring services for the Project, which began construction in March 2019, with a targeted commercial operation of June 1, 2021.
