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.

Duke Begins Building Washington 600 Megawatter

LCG, Oct. 10, 2001--A subsidiary of Duke Energy Corp. said this morning that it would break ground today on a new $300 million electric power generating facility in Grays Harbor County, Wash., about 32 miles west of Olympia.

Duke Energy North America said the Grays Harbor Energy Facility, a 600 megawatt, combined-cycle power plant, will be located in the Satsop Development Park and is slated to begin commercial operation in mid-2003.

U.S. Sen. Patty Murray noted that the energy crisis "does not get the attention it received a few months ago" but pointed out that the new plant will provide "much needed power, as well as family-wage jobs for Grays Harbor County."

The new plant will be constructed on a site next to terminated nuclear plant projects. While the nuclear plants were never operational, the new plant will use some of the site facilities associated with the partially completed plants, such as the electric transmission and water systems, Duke said.

Duke/Fluor Daniel will build the facility and work closely with local labor unions to complete the project. A peak work force of approximately 500 skilled workers will be employed during the construction. When complete, the facility will employ about 25 operation and maintenance professionals, the company said.
