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.

FPL Completes New York City Peaker

LCG, July 8, 2002--A new peaking plant developed by FPL Energy has started selling power to the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) from the Rockaway Peninsula, just east of the New York City borough of Brooklyn.

The gas-fired Bayswater Energy Center has an installed capacity of 54 megawatts, with construction having begun in December 2001. FPL Energy president Ron Green said, "We're pleased that the Bayswater Energy Center is now fully operational and able to support LIPA's energy needs for the Rockaways just in time to meet increased demand this summer." The plant's output is under long-term contract.

The Rockaway Peninsula is connected by the Cross Bay Veterans Memorial Bridge to the rest of the Queens borough. Cross Bay Boulevard, on the northern span, enters the marshes of Jamaica Bay, which were first developed for residential and recreational use in 1939. An alternative plan would have made the area a huge industrial port.
