As gas prices rise and electricity prices rise, more and more companies are turning to toll agreements to finance and share the risk of building new commercial power plants, Dealmaker says. Roger D. Feldman, a partner and co-chair of Bingham`s financing and development group Dana LLP, told Power-Gen International on Wednesday that the basic model appears to be that energy companies, which can deal with both fuel and electricity risk, are gaining the upper hand on such projects. Project sponsors are also subject to various sanctions if they do not meet the expectations of the toll company, including the timely construction of the facility. This has become a hot topic during the negotiations. The first equipment manufacturers are struggling to meet delivery deadlines.
