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.

MISO Ready to Open New Electricity Markets

LCG, February 17, 2005--The Midwest Independent Transmission System Operator (Midwest ISO) yesterday announced that it has filed Certificates of Operational and OrganizationalReadiness with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), signaling that it is ready and prepared to commence operations of the new markets on April 1.

In August 2004, the FERC conditionally accepted the Midwest ISO's proposed Open Access Transmission and Energy Markets Tariff (TEMT), with one of the conditions that the Midwest ISO certify its market readiness. The Midwest markets were initially scheduled to be launched on March 1, 2005; however, on January 27, the ISO announced the one-month delay, which was stated to be in response to stakeholder requests.

The new market design includes Day-Ahead and Real-Time energy markets, with centralized, security-constrained, economic dispatch and locational marginal pricing (LMP) similar to that used in northeastern markets, such as PJM, New York ISO and ISO New England.

The Midwest ISO service territory extends from eastern Montana through the upper Midwest - including Manitoba - and south to parts of Kentucky and Missouri. With the implementation of the TEMT, the FERC's Standard Market Design, with LMP-based pricing, will generally be in use throughout the northern half of the Eastern Interconnect.
