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.

Construction Begins on 2,300 Megawatt Arizona Plant

LCG, May 24, 2001--TECO Power Services Corp. and Panda Energy International Inc. announced jointly this morning that they have begun initial construction and site preparation work on their 2,300 megawatt Gila River power station in Gila Bend, Ariz.

The big plant will be brought on line in four phases, the joint venture said, without revealing the size or timing of the phases. The companies did say that the natural gas-fueled plant would begin commercial operation in the summer of 2003.

Michael Schuyler, a TECO official, said the facility "will be one of the largest facilities in our generating portfolio. We look forward to providing needed energy to the fast-growing region of thecountry it will serve."

The companies said power from Gila River will be sold into the Arizona wholesale electricity market with excess output available to wholesale customers in California, Nevada and New Mexico.

TECO Power Services is an affiliate of Florida utility Tampa Electric Co.
