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.

Enron's Bankruptcy Plan Filed

LCG, July 11, 2003--Enron filed a bankruptcy reorganization plan that the company's acting chief executive, Stephen Cooper, said represented a distribution of "100% of the economic value of Enron."

The plan will account for 300 classes of creditors, which have claims against 173 affiliates included in the filing for bankruptcy protection. A majority of the members of each class will need to approve the plan, and a vote of two-thirds of the total dollar amount will have to give its backing. Cooper said that a number of creditors and the court-appointed examiner representing Enron North America creditors have voiced their support.

The claims creditors say they are owed equal $67 billion, although what they will receive may be between 14.4 cents and 18.3 cents per dollar, much less than creditors in most bankruptcies receive. The payouts will be made 70% in cash, according to Cooper.
