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.

Plant Expansions Approved in Florida

LCG, Apr. 9, 2003--Two plant expansions to be undertaken at existing Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) generating sites have been approved by the governor and cabinet, the company announced yesterday.

FPL selected its own proposals from among 134 bids submitted for both projects, and plans to have the new capacity providing power at the Manatee and Martin plants by 2005. The Manatee plant will have a new 1,107-megawatt combined-cycle generating unit that burns natural gas installed in Parrish, Florida, on the western side of the peninsula. The Martin plant's overall capacity will be increased by 789 megawatts by a gas-fired combined-cycle unit. The Martin plant is in Indiantown, on the eastern side of the state.
