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's New 1,329-MW Warren County Power Station Begins Commercial Operations

LCG, December 12, 2014-Dominion announced yesterday that the 1,329-MW Warren County Power Station commenced commercial operations yesterday. The natural gas-fired, combined-cycle facility is the newest plant in Dominion Virginia Power's generation fleet. Project construction on the $1.1 billion facility began in March 2012 and was completed on schedule.

Dominion Generation's chief executive officer stated, "Our newest power station is a welcome addition to a generating fleet that is already one of the cleanest and most-reliable in the nation. It fills a critical need to meet growing demand in the Commonwealth and in Northern Virginia in particular. It is built to be both environmentally and economically efficient, promoting quality of life as well as economic development."

The Warren County Power Station is built on a 39-acre site in the Warren Industrial Park, which is located approximately about 70 miles west of Washington, D.C. The station includes three Mitsubishi M501GAC gas turbines and a Mitsubishi TC4F steam turbine with an air cooled condenser. Dominion received approval to construct the facility from the Virginia State Corporation Commission on February 2, 2012.

The Warren County Power Station is now the largest natural gas-fueled generating facility in Virginia. However, in 2016 a larger sister station, Dominion's 1,360-MW Brunswick Power Station, in Brunswick County, is scheduled to begin operations.

Dominion Virginia Power is a subsidiary of Dominion.
