Constellation unit to be reviewed over complaint

HARTFORD, Conn. - The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has agreed to hear Connecticut's complaint that two energy companies received more than $50 million for electricity that was never delivered, the state said Tuesday. State officials, including Gov. M. Jodi Rell and Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, said that Canada based-Brookfield Energy Marketing Inc. and Constellation Energy Commodities Group of Baltimore collected payments for electricity that it never delivered. Connecticut is asking for the money to be returned. Lawrence McDonnell, a spokesman for Constellation Energy, said the company followed "both the spirit and letter of rules."
