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.

Indiana Plant Starts Operations

LCG, July 19, 2002--The Sugar Creek generating plant, developed by Mirant near Terre Haute, Ind., has started operations, according to the company.

The part of the plant now operating is considered the first of two planned phases. Currently, Sugar Creek will operate as a peaking facility, providing 300 megawatts during times of heavy demand. A second, 259-megawatt combined-cycle phase, planned for summer 2003, will reportedly follow.

Randy Harrison, senior vice president, said, "Mirant plans to add approximately 1,500 megawatts of electricity generation in North America this year. The addition of Sugar Creek to our North American generation fleet is another important step towards meeting that milestone, and providing the U.S. with reliable and efficient power."
