Constellation Energy has begun commercial dispatch for its Hillabee Power Plant in Alabama, US.

The firm bought the partially completed 740MW combined-cycle natural-gas power plant from Calpine Corporation in 2008.

Constellation Power Generation president John Long said the Hillabee Power Plant is a major addition to their portfolio of plants across the country and adds a new facility in a strategic and growing market.

Hillabee will generate power to help Constellation Energy satisfy existing customer load obligations and increasing energy demand in the region.
