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.

NRC Renews Operating License for Wolf Creek Generating Station in Kansas

LCG, November 21, 2008--The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) announced yesterday that it approved the renewal of the Wolf Creek Generating Station in Kansas. With the 20-year extension, the nuclear facility is licensed to operate until March 11, 2045. The power plant is owned by Kansas City Power & Light (47 percent), Westar Energy, Inc. (47 percent) and Kansas Electric Power Cooperative, Inc. (6 percent).

The plant operator, Wolf Creek Nuclear Operating Corporation, filed its license renewal application in September 2006. The NRC staff determined there are no environmental impacts and there are no safety concerns that would preclude renewal of the license. In addition, the Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards, which is an independent body of technical experts that advises the NRC, submitted its recommendation that the license renewal application for Wolf Creek should be approved.
