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.

British Power Prices May Lead to New Plants

LCG, Nov. 7, 2003--New gas-fired power plants may be built in Britain if power prices rise further, according to the chief executive of Scottish & Southern Energy, Ian Marchant, who spoke with the Financial Times this week.

Marchant said that the company is analyzing the possible financial results from building the plants, but that the power prices do not quite justify building yet. The two changes that might spur new projects are a rise in power prices of £2 to £3 or lower gas prices. The chief executive also said that Scottish & Southern might bid for regional gas transmission networks owned by National Grid Transco, if bids were to be solicited.
