Protest of Application By SoftBank Group To Sell Power From Natural Gas Facility in Ohio

By Tyson Slocum

Long Ridge Energy Generation LLC owns and operates a 522 MW natural gas power plant in Ohio. Long Ridge is owned 50.1% by Fortress Transportation and Infrastructure Investors LLC and 49.9% by Labor Impact Fund, L.P. Fortress is managed by an affiliate of Fortress Investment Group LLC, which in turn is owned by SoftBank Group Corp. Public Citizen has raised issues before about the failure of Fortress to adequately disclose its affiliation with SoftBank in its efforts to develop an LNG facility. We raise similar issues here in their application to sell electricity from their natural gas power plant. Read our four-page protest in FERC Docket No. ER21-1225 here: LongRidge
