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.

New Jersey Utility Joins PJM from NYISO

LCG, Mar. 28, 2002--New Jersey's Bergen County, served by Rockland Electric Co., will be part of the Pennsylvania-Jersey-Maryland Interconnection, the Mid-Atlantic grid operator.

Prior to the announcement by Rockland, the utility had been part of the New York Independent System Operator market territory. The addition of Rockland is the first since Washington, DC's Potomac Electric Power joined in 1966. PJM West represents a further upcoming addition to PJM, and will cover the territory served by Allegheny Power's transmission system, including parts of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia. The company is a subsidiary of Allegheny Energy Inc., based in Hagerstown, Md.

Rockland's service territory supplies approximately 400 megawatts of demand, but does not represent any generation. Rockland will take part in the Basic Generation Service auction, which is intended to offer retail customers the opportunity to select alternative suppliers on a competitive basis.
