Vistra Receives Approval from Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Energy Harbor Acquisition

This marks the final regulatory approval needed in the acquisition process

IRVING, Texas — Feb. 19, 2024 — Vistra (NYSE: VST) has now received approval from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to acquire Energy Harbor.

Vistra announced last March that the purchase of Energy Harbor, which includes a 4,000-megawatt nuclear generation fleet and retail business of ~1 million customers, presents a unique opportunity to accelerate the growth of Vistra’s zero-carbon generation portfolio.

FERC’s approval, which was received Friday afternoon, was the last regulatory approval needed for the companies to close the transaction.

Vistra anticipates closing in the coming weeks.
