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.

Cross-County Cable Back in Service in New York State

LCG, July 1, 2002--An 18-mile cable linking substations in New York state's Westchester and Nassau Counties that failed over a month ago has been restored to service.

The cable is currently rated at 400 megawatts, in order not to risk another failure. The Y-50 cable had been rated at 600 megawatts before a section running beneath Long Island Sound cut transmission on May 18.

Long Island Power Authority will be able to withdraw 250 megawatts at Glenwood Landing, while Consolidated Edison's Queen service area will be entitled to 150 megawatts. The repairs to the cable were finished three weeks earlier than had been anticipated.
