Two small QFs controlled by EIF Management are being fired up

Plum Point Energy Associates LLC (PPEA) and Plum Point Services Co. LLC (PPSC) notified the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in a Nov. 30 filing that two affiliated, recently self-certified qualifying facilities (QFs) that it is affiliated with have been fired up or will soon be operational.

The County Line facility began operation on or about Oct. 28 and the Sarasota facility is scheduled to begin operation on or about Dec. 16.  The Plum Point companies, both of which are involved with a coal-fired power plant in Arkansas, and the new QFs are indirect subsidiaries of funds managed by EIF Management LLC.

  • Zimmerman Energy LLC owns the County Line QF, an approximately 6-MW facility located in Fulton County, Indiana. The County Line QF is fully committed to Northern Indiana Public Service and the Wabash Electric Cooperative.
  • Landfill Energy Systems Florida LLC owns the Sarasota QF, an approximately 4.8-MW QF in Sarasota County, Florida. The Sarasota QF is fully committed to the Jacksonville Electric Authority, which goes by the name JEA.

The Plum Point facility is a 665-MW, coal-fired facility located near Osceola, Arkansas, and interconnected with Entergy Arkansas. Nearly all of PPEA’s share of the Plum Point facility’s electrical output remains committed under long-term firm wholesale power sales agreements to three unaffiliated customers (South Mississippi Electric Power Association, Empire District Electric and Missouri Joint Municipal Electric Utility Commission).
