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.

DTE Selects GE Hitachi's ESBWR

LCG, June 18, 2008--Detroit Edison (DTE) selected GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy's Economic Simplified Boiling Water Reactor (ESBWR) design for a new nuclear reactor that may be constructed at DTE's existing Fermi-2 power plant site in Michigan.

DTE notified the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) that it intends to use the ESBWR in its submittal of a combined construction and operating license (COL) application this fall.

DTE has not committed to develop a new reactor; however, it is considering the opportunity and must submit an application prior to year-end to be eligible to receive federal financial incentives set forth in the Energy Policy Act of 2005.

The ESBWR design, which has a design capacity of 1,520 MW, has also been selected by Exelon, Dominion, and Entergy.
