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.

Dominion Announces Plans for 1.300 MW Gas-Fired Power Plant in Virginia

LCG, February 29, 2011--Dominion Virginia Power, a subsidiary of Dominion, announced yesterday that it plans to request permission from the Virginia State Corporation Commission later this year to construct a 1,300-MW, natural gas-fired power station on a 205-acre site in Brunswick County. As proposed, the project will be completed by the summer of 2016.

The Brunswick County Power Station will incorporate a combined-cycle design with an electric generating capacity of approximately 1,300 MW. The estimated cost is over $1 billion. Dominion stated that it already has received the necessary conditional use permits from the Brunswick County Board of Supervisors to build the station and has applied to the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality for the air permit.

Dominion's president and chief executive officer stated, "The Brunswick County site offers us an ideal location to generate electricity to serve Southside Virginia and Hampton Roads reliably and will help us close the gap of 4,000 megawatts in additional peak demand that our customers are expected to need within the next decade....We expect this new power station to operate very efficiently and reduce the amount of power that we have to import from outside the Commonwealth. Building this station also is the best, most cost-effective and reliable way to meet the latest federal clean-air standards."

Last September Dominion announced that it would likely retire several coal-fired units at its Chesapeake Energy Center in Chesapeake and Yorktown Power Station by 2016.
