3 April 2017 - Illinois-based utility services holding company Exelon Generation (NYSE: EXC) has closed the acquisition US-based electric utility operator Entergy Corp.'s (NYSE: ETR) James A. FitzPatrick Nuclear Power Plant in Scriba, New York, for USD 110m, the company said.

Under the agreement, totaling USD 110m, Entergy transfered FitzPatrick's operating license to Exelon.

The New York Power Authority agreed to transfer the decommissioning trust fund and liability for FitzPatrick to Entergy, and if regulatory approvals are obtained and the transaction closes, Entergy would then transfer the fund and associated liability to Exelon.

Exelon operates two other nuclear energy facilities in upstate New York: R.E. Ginna and Nine Mile Point, the latter of which is adjacent to FitzPatrick.

Together, the two plants provide carbon-free electricity to more than 2.5m homes and businesses, employing more than 1,500 full-time staff.
