AWEA Issues Fourth Quarter 2019 Market Report

LCG, February 7, 2020--The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) recently released its new U.S. Wind Industry Fourth Quarter 2019 Market Report. AWEA reports new wind turbine installations have added 5,476 MW of electric generating capacity during the fourth quarter, which results in 2019 installations totaling 9,143 MW. The total installations represent an increase over 2018, but the total for 2019 falls short of total annual installations for 2015 and 2016. In addition to new capacity additions, developers completed 2,500 MW of turbine repowerings for the year.

New York PSC Directs Further Efforts to Support Retirement of Indian Point Nuclear Units

LCG, April 19, 2013--The New York Public Service Commission (PSC) yesterday announced directives to support the closure of the two Indian Point nuclear reactors, which is one of the elements of the Governor's Energy Highway Blueprint issued last October by the Governor's Energy Highway Task Force.

The Governor of New York has previously expressed his desire to close the nuclear reactors, located about 40 miles north of Manhattan along the Hudson River, when the operating licenses expire in September 2013 and December 2015. The governor has stated that even the most unlikely possibility of an accident is too much in the heavily populated area.

Entergy, the owner of the Indian Point Energy Center, claims the reactors are safe and filed with the NRC in 2007 to renew the operating licenses for a 20-year extension. The two nuclear units have a combined generating capacity of 2,069 MW.

The Commission yesterday addressed portions of the plan filed by Consolidated Edison Company of New York Inc. and the New York Power Authority (NYPA) to mitigate the impact resulting from retiring the Indian Point nuclear power plants. As part of that proceeding, the Commission approved contingency program goals designed to achieve demand reductions from energy efficiency, demand response and on-site generation projects, and directed Con Edison to work with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), and in consultation with NYPA, to file a detailed implementation plan.

The Commission yesterday directed Con Edison and the New York State Electric and Gas Corporation, working with NYPA, to begin development of transmission owner transmission solutions to resolve reliability issues that would develop if Indian Point were to be retired. In addition, the Commission proposed that costs that would be incurred if Indian Point were retired should be recovered from the beneficiaries of the contingency plan who would otherwise suffer from reliability problems if Indian Point closes without the benefit of the plan?s remedial measures. The Commission also directed staff to issue a straw proposal to best identify these beneficiaries.
