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.

Duke Suspends Overtime Work on Nevada Plant

LCG, September 5, 2002--Duke Energy will stop overtime and weekend labor on the Moapa plant, the third Duke plant to see slowed construction in two months.

Poor market conditions have slowed construction nationwide, and Duke has been considering selling unfinished plants or simply delaying construction. Construction on the Duke-owned 608-megawatt Deming plant in New Mexico and the 620-megawatt Grays Harbor plant in Washington state was suspended last month.

Moapa, which will have 1,222 megawatts of capacity when completed, was originally to begin operations by the summer of 2003 along with the Deming and Grays Harbor plants, but market conditions will have the final say in when the three plants will actually come on line.
