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.

Panda, Alliant in 1,100 Megawatt Michigan Project

LCG, Oct. 17, 2001--Panda Energy International Inc. and Alliant Energy Corp. said yesterday they have formed a joint venture to build and operate a 1,100 megawatt natural gas, combined-cycle power plant in western Michigan's Tallmadge Township.

Panda said construction will begin next spring and the plant is scheduled for full commercial operation in early 2004.

Under the joint venture, Panda will lead development while Alliant will provide four natural gas turbines, as well as additional long-lead equipment used to interconnect the facility to the region's power grid. Alliant Energy also brings extensive facility operations experience to the joint venture.

"We have said from the beginning of the Tallmadge project that when it came time to select a joint venture company, we would look for an organization capable of contributing resources and operational experience," said Garry Hubbard, a Panda senior vice president.
