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.

FERC Notifies Duke Investigation into Withholding is Closed

LCG, Aug. 1, 2003--Duke Energy Corp. has justified its behavior during the energy crisis of 2000 and 2001 sufficiently for the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to end further investigation, as it found no "conclusive evidence at this time" that the company intentionally withheld power from the market.

The FERC complied a group of approximately 100 market participants, many of which controlled 60 megawatts of generation or less, which it said had been cleared of having taken capacity out of the market. Duke Energy was owner of about 3,000 megawatts in the Western U.S. during the crisis. The exact period that has been under scrutiny is May 1, 2000, through June 30, 2001. Other large firms that had hundreds or thousands of megawatts at their disposal remain under investigation.
