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.

LG Electronics Suspends Conergy Solar Joint-Venture Plans

LCG, November 13, 2008--LG Electronics (LG) announced late last week that it has discontinued discussions with Germany's Conergy AG (Conergy) regarding the creation of a joint venture for solar cell manufacturing due to current global financial uncertainty and differences in strategic directions. LG stated it will continue to explore opportunities in solar photovoltaic cell and module manufacturing.

LG and Conergy announced September 11 that they had executed a non-binding, Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to form a joint venture in the solar module manufacturing business. LG was to have purchased a 75 percent stake in Conergy's solar module plant in Frankfurt, with Conergy retaining the remainder.

In October, LG announced that it plans to convert its A1 plasma panel-manufacturing line in Gumi, Korea, into two, crystalline silicon solar cell production lines. The first production line is scheduled to commence production in early 2010, with a second line entering production a year later.
