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.

EPCOR Expands Wind Farm Potential in Ontario

LCG, April 22, 2005--EPCOR has reached an agreement to acquire Port Albert Wind Farms, Ltd. (PAWF), including the development and interconnection rights for more than 270 MW of electric generation derived from the wind along the western shores of Lake Huron.

In Ontario, EPCOR is already constructing the Kingsbridge Wind Power Project that is scheduled to commence operations in late 2005 or early 2006. The 39.6-MW project, located near Goderich, is adjacent to most of the development rights acquired from PAWF.

The Kingsbridge Wind Power Project was selected last November by the Ontario Ministry of Energy following the release of the Ontario government's Request for Proposals (RFP) for renewable energy supplies earlier last year. New energy supplies are critical to the Province of Ontario, which has already committed to closing 7,600 MW of coal-fired generating capacity - including the 1,140-MW Lakeview Generating Station this month - by 2008 in order to improve air quality.
