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.

DTE, Entergy to Build 320 Megawatt Illinois Plant

LCG, May 31, 2001Subsidiaries of DTE Energy Inc. and Entergy Corp. said yesterday they would build a jointly-owned 320 megawatt natural gas-fueled power plant in the village of Crete, Ill., about 30 miles south of Chicago.

DTE Energy Services and Entergy Wholesale Operations said the plant could be built in about a year's time and have scheduled commercial operation for June 2002.

"The electric output from this facility will be available in time to supply additional electricity to theregion during high-demand periods next summer," said Barry G. Markowitz, president of DTE EnergyServices. "In addition to the power, the Crete plant will help fuel economic growth in the area as thefirst tenant in the Crete Industrial Park."

Natural gas delivery for the project will be provided through the recently completed Vector Interstate Pipeline. The Vector pipeline is partially owned by MCN Energy Inc., which will become part of DTE Energy as a result of a merger between the companies, expected to close May 31.

The new facility will be operated by Entergy Operating Systems Inc.
