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.

Peruvian Privatization Woes Lead to Director's Resignation

LCG, July 22, 2002-Peru's executive director of privatization resigned as the sale of government electricity assets has been repeatedly delayed.

Ricardo Vega Llona, who resigned once before in late June, resigned for good. Alberto Pasco-Font has taken his position as executive director.

The Peruvian government postponed the sale of state-owned energy companies Egasa and Egesur several times because of public outcry and fears on the part of the purchasers. Belgian energy company Tractabel won the bidding on Egasa and Egesur, but the final sale was postponed in the midst of widespread riots in southern areas of Peru.

Peru decided to sell government assets this year in order to raise $700 million, but Vega Llona contends that the privatization will not yield the expected cash.

Now government officials say that Egasa and Egesur, along with some other assets, will not be sold until after elections in November.
