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.

Energy South to Store Gas for Southern Co. Units

LCG, Aug. 4, 2000---Bay Gas Storage Co. Ltd. said yesterday it signed a 15-year contract with Southern C. Services Inc. to provide up to 3.2 million Btus of salt-dome natural gas storage for a handful of Southern Co. subsidiaries.

The Energy South Inc. subsidiary will provide storage for Alabama Power Co., Georgia Power Co., Gulf Power Co., Mississippi Power Co. and Savannah Electric & Power Co., all subsidiaries of The Southern Co.

"The Gulf Coast is experiencing a dramatic surge in development of natural gas-powered electricgenerating plants," said Greg Welch, Bay Gas marketing director. "This new contract will quadruple the amount of natural gas storage Bay Gas provides for Southern Co. subsidiaries."

John Davis, chief executive of Energy South, said his Bay Gas unit is in the right place. "We're at the crossroads between the increased natural gas production coming onshore in the central Gulf Coast, and the growing market for that gas in the Southeastern United States," he said.
