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.

PSE&G Transfers Generation Assets to Affiliate

LCG, Aug. 22, 2000--Public Service Electric & Gas Co. said yesterday that it has transferred its electric generating facilities to PSEG Power, an unregulated power producing affiliate. The transfer was made in conformance with the companys restructuring order issued by the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities.

The power plants and other assets will be transferred at the price specified in the order, which is $2.443 billion plus $242 million for other generating related assets such as fuel, materials, and supplies.

If a court decision upholding the Boards restructuring and securitization orders regarding PSE&G is modified by an appeal now before the New Jersey Supreme Court, PSE&G and PSEG Power will execute a supplemental agreement to reflect any change in the value of the assets.

PSE&G said the transfer was completed within the year allowed by the Board of Public Utilities.
