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.

Gas Pipeline Expected in Mid-Altantic

LCG, July 9, 2002--A natural gas pipeline that could begin operation in mid-2005 is planned in West Virginia and North Carolina by Dominion Resources Inc. and Piedmont Natural Gas Co.

The $497 million Greenbrier pipeline is currently undergoing review by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, and has been in pre-filing since November. The capacity of the pipeline would be 580 million cubic feet of natural gas, linking Kanawha County, W. Va. with Granville County, N.C. over a distance of 280 miles.

According to a press release, the pipeline would allow gas to flow to the Mid-Atlantic and southeast from Canada, Appalachia and the Mid-Continent region, and connect the Greenbrier area with the Gulf of Mexico and Gulf Coast.
