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.

CADWR Sues Allegheny Energy Over Alleged Breach of Contract

LCG, Jan. 30, 2003-The California Department of Water Resources (CADWR) filed suit yesterday against an energy company regarding the transfer of a contract to an affiliate.

Allegheny Energy, Inc.'s unit, Allegheny Energy Supply, had a ten-year electricity contract with the DWR, and in December, the contract was given to the new unit, Allegheny Trading Finance Company.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission provided the official okay for the transfer, but the CADWR now asserts that the $4.4 billion electricity contract does not allow for the transfer.

The CADWR further asserts that the contract has therefore been terminated by the alleged breach. The contract was initially signed in March 2001.
