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.

Transformer Fire at Manhattan Plant Causes Outage

LCG, July 22, 2002-On Saturday a transformer at a Manhattan power plant caught fire and created power outages for several hours.

Firefighters and police announced a "Level 3" alert in response to the incident, but plant officials determined that the fire was not caused by an explosion and that there was no sign of possible terrorist activity.

Power was restored to the 63,500 affected customers by 8:15 pm, less than 8 hours after the fire was first detected.

Some subway services and businesses were shut down in Greenwich Village and Lower Manhattan, and some 500 firefighters and hundreds of police showed up at the plant fire.

The plant, owned by Consolidated Edison, sustained no serious damage in the fire.
