TECAN is developing an expansion project through the conversion of its power plant from OCGT to a CCGT, which will increase its installed capacity by 252 MW, from 324 MW to 566 MW, which represents a boost in its capacity of close to 80%. This installed capacity increase will represent an expansion of approximately 19.8% of our total installed capacity and will allow TECAN to receive incremental OEFs through additional Reliability Charge revenues that were assigned through the auction that took place on February 28, 2019.  As a CCGT, TECAN will become more efficient by reducing its heat rate to approximately 6,618 BTU/KWh, representing an efficiency enhancement of 35% (from 10,219 BTU/KWh under its current OCGT configuration).
