Consolidated Edison Development, Inc., in partnership with Delta Power Company, LLC, of Morristown, New Jersey, announced today that it has completed the acquisition of a 50-percent share in an electric and steam power generation plant in Michigan from a unit of MCN Energy Group Inc. (NYSE: MCN). Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Con Edison Development, a wholly owned subsidiary of Consolidated Edison, Inc. (NYSE: ED), made the investment in the Ada Cogeneration Project in Ada, Michigan through an affiliate it formed with Delta, which is the minority partner. The affiliate, CED/DELTA Ada, will be both a limited partner and a general partner in the project, along with MCNIC Power Company, a subsidiary of MCN Energy Group. The plant is a 29.4-megawatt cogeneration facility that sells electricity and steam under contracts with Consumers Energy and Amway International.

Both CED/DELTA Ada and MCNIC Power refinanced the entire project through ABN AMRO Bank N.V.'s Project Finance Group in Chicago.

"The Ada project is an operating cogeneration plant with a proven track record," said Charles Muoio, president of Con Edison Development. "Our investment in this project establishes the beginning of a strategic partnership with MCNIC Power Company. The companies intend to cooperate on additional domestic and foreign projects."
