New York Poised to Close Last Coal-fire Power Plant

LCG, December 4, 2019--The last operating coal-fired power plant in New York is moving toward closure shortly. Last month, Somerset Operating Company, a subsidiary of Riesling Power LLC, submitted a request to the New York State Public Service Commission (NYSPSC) to waive the state's required, 180-day notice to close the Somerset Station, allowing the facility to be retired on February 15, 2020. Closure is contingent on approvals by both NYSPSC and the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO), which will evaluate if it will cause an adverse effect on grid reliability.

PSEG Requests Permits for 750 Megawatt New York Plant

LCG, May 8, 2001--Public Service Enterprise Group Inc. said yesterday that an ad hoc subsidiary has filed permit applications in New York State for its proposed Bethlehem Energy Center, a 750 megawatt natural gas-fueled, combined-cycle power plant just south of Albany, N.Y.

The new plant will be built on the site of and replace the 400 megawatt Albany Stream Station PSEG acquired last year from Niagara Mohawk Power Corp. The primary fuel for that four-unit plant has been fuel oil.

PSEG said the new plant will not only produce nearly 90 percent more power, it will reduce emissions of sulphur dioxide and oxides of nitrogen by as much as 98 percent. It will also reduce use of Hudson River water by 98 percent to 99 percent.

The company said it expects to have the $400 million project commence commercial operation in late 2003 to mid-2004.
