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.

Landfill Becomes Source of Power

LCG, March 18, 2002-A Pennsylvania landfill has become a source of electric power.

600,000 cubic feet of methane gas will be combusted to power a Caterpillar generator at the West Burlington landfill. The heat will be used to decompose organic waste and generate electricity.

The little system will product 800 kilowatts to be sold on the open market.

Other landfills prevent methane-related accidents by burning excess gas already released, but the Pennsylvania landfill has drilled wells in the landfill and used blowers to extract gas from the wells to supply their generator.

PPL Energy Services, a subsidiary of the PPL Corporation, managed the project, saying that their system reduces greenhouse gas emissions by limiting "landfill gas," the odorless methane that landfills produce as waste decays.
