LCG, February 7, 2020--The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) recently released its new U.S. Wind Industry Fourth Quarter 2019 Market Report. AWEA reports new wind turbine installations have added 5,476 MW of electric generating capacity during the fourth quarter, which results in 2019 installations totaling 9,143 MW. The total installations represent an increase over 2018, but the total for 2019 falls short of total annual installations for 2015 and 2016.

Long Island Power Authority Plans 10 Small Peakers

LCG, Oct. 16, 2001--The Long Island Power Authority said yesterday it plans to build 10 small electric "peaking" power plants in Nassau and Suffolk Counties, N.Y., that will add 408 megawatts of capacity by next summer.

The program will be similar to that of the New York Power Authority which, despite minor local opposition, built 10 small peakers in New York City and one on Long Island to get the Big Apple through this year's summer demand.

"We have just barely enough power to meet our summer forecast right now," LIPA spokesman Michael Lowndes said, adding "We've been saying for more than a year that we need more power plants on Long Island."

Lowndes said the combustion turbines -- the outgrowth of recent jet engine research -- will be in addition to other LIPA projects. Projects are underway for development of a 44 megawatt facility in Far Rockaway, a 79 megawatt plant in Glenwood Landing and another 79 megawatt plant in Shoreham, all to be on-line by next summer.
