Edison Mission Energy said the bankruptcy filing shouldn't have any immediate effect on the operations of either company, which include Midwest Generation plants in Joliet, Pekin, Waukegan and Romeoville.

The business information website Hoover's says Midwest has about 960 employees. According to its website, Edison Mission Energy through its subsidiaries owns or leased more than 40 power plants in California, Pennsylvania, Iowa, Illinois and other states capable of producing more than 10,000 megawatts of power. The company also has a plant in Turkey.

In the news release, the companies said they plan to separate from Edison International by the end of 2014.
