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.

McCoy Solar Energy Project Receives Local Approval

LCG, March 19, 2014 - NextEra Energy continues to make progress with the proposed McCoy Solar Energy Project in Southern California. Last week the Riverside County supervisors issued a conditional use permit for a 50-MW photovoltaic (PV) solar array on 477 acres of privately owned land.

The project site is located in Riverside County, approximately 13 miles northwest of Blythe, California, near the Nevada border. The majority of the proposed project will be developed on public land administered by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), using over 4,000 acres of BLM land for the expanded, 750-MW solar energy generating facility.

Southern California Edison (SCE) has a power purchase and sale agreement (PPSA) with McCoy Solar, LLC, whose parent company is NextEra Energy Resources, for the output from the initial 250-MW installation, which is anticipated to commence operations later this year.

Last October, it was announced that First Solar will provide Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) services, using First Solar's cadmium telluride (CdTe) PV thin-film modules to build the 250 MW of solar generating capacity.
