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.

LCG, Sept. 29, 2000The GE Power Systems unit of General Electric Co. said yesterday it has received multi-year contracts from The Southern Co. covering service of combined-cycle power plants being built by the Atlanta-based utility in the southeastern United States. GE said the total value of the contracts was $575 million.

The long-term service agreements support turbine generators, steam turbines, control systems and auxiliary equipment, GE said.

GE said the combined-cycle systems will be located at the Wansley Power Station in Roopville, Ga., the Goat Rock Power Station in Smith, Ala., and at several other sites yet to be announced. The plants are scheduled for commercial operation over the years 2001 to 2004.
