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.

Mirant Writes Off Chile's Edelnor, Seeks Buyer

LCG, Oct. 22, 2001--Mirant Corp. of the United States said on Friday it would write off its entire investment in Chilean power company Empresa Electrica del Norte Grande S.A. (Edelnor), and would seek a buyer for the money-losing company.

The announcement came following decisions by Electroandina, a Chilean utility, and AES Corp. of the U.S. to cancel their bids to acquire control of Edelnor by buying the Chilean company's debt for about a two-thirds discount.

Mirant has said for some time that it would not invest any new money in Edelnor and confirmed Friday that liquidity was a major problem for its Chilean unit.

Mirant also said it could give no assurance that Edelnor would be able to make interest payments due on December 15.
