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.

Maritimes Pipeline to Provide Gas to New Hampshire Plant

LCG, May 18, 2001The Maritimes & Northeast Pipeline LLC said yesterday it reached an agreement with an ad hoc subsidiary of Consolidated Edison Inc. to provide natural gas transportation service to a 525 megawatt power plant currently under construction in Newington, N.H.

The plant, being developed by Con Edison affiliate Newington Energy LLC, is scheduled to begin commercial operation next year. Maritimes & Northeast intends to build a connection to the plant from an existing lateral near the plant.

"With natural gas from the Maritimes pipeline, we will be able to produce cleaner, low-costelectricity for the people of New Hampshire and New England," said Michael Madia, a Newington vice president.

Maritimes & Northeast transports natural gas from the Sable offshore project near Nova Scotia. When the pipeline went into service last year, it bought gas to parts of the U.S. Northeast that had never had the fuel.

Maritimes & Northeast is jointly owned by affiliates of Duke Energy Corp. (37.5 percent), Canada's Westcoast Energy Inc. (37.5 percent), Exxon Mobil Corp. (12.5 percent); and Emera Inc. of Nova Scotia (12.5 percent).
