first_imgVistra begins process of closing 2,000MW of coal capacity in Illinois FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享S&P Global Market Intelligence ($):Vistra Energy Corp. on Aug. 21 identified four coal-fired power plants in Illinois with a combined capacity of 2,000 MW that it will close by the end of this year to meet recently approved amendments to the state’s Multi-Pollutant Standard, or MPS, rule.The Illinois Pollution Control Board in June directed Vistra to retire 2,000 MW of coal-fired generating capacity by the end of this year to comply with the amended rule, which regulates and sets new caps for sulfur dioxide, or SO2, and nitrogen oxide, or NOx, emissions for coal-fired power plants in central and southern Illinois. In its order, the board said the amendments to the MPS rule are “economically reasonable and technically feasible.”The plants slated for retirements, all interconnected to the Midcontinent ISO market, are the 915-MW Coffeen plant in Montgomery County, 434-MW Havana 6 plant in Mason County, 425-MW Duck Creek plant in Fulton County, and 294-MW Hennepin plant in Putnam County. According to a Vistra news release, the plants are between 41 and 66 years old.According to S&P Global Market Intelligence data, the Coffeen plant’s sole source of coal this year has been Peabody Energy Corp.’s North Antelope Rochelle Mine in Campbell County, Wyo. For Havana 6, the largest source of coal has been Blackjewel LLC’s Belle Ayr Mine, also in Campbell County, Wyo., along with North Antelope Rochelle and Arch Coal Inc.’s Black Thunder Mine, in Campbell County, Wyo., as well. The Black Thunder Mine is the largest source of coal for the Duck Creek plant, while Cloud Peak Energy Inc.’s Antelope Coal Mine in Converse County, Wyo., has been another source. Belle Ayr, North Antelope Rochelle and Black Thunder are all sources of coal for the Hennepin plant.Following the plant closures, Vistra will have approximately 5,000 MW of coal-fired capacity in the Illinois, including an 80% stake in the 1,002-MW Joppa Steam station in Massac County, according to S&P Global Market Intelligence data.The plant retirements are pending Midcontinent ISO and PJM Interconnection reviews for potential reliability impacts and termination of certain tariffs by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.More ($): Vistra names Illinois coal plants to be shut for emissions rule compliancelast_img read more

There should be consensus support for Bissoondyal Singh as DCB president

first_imgI WAS indeed pleased, likewise relieved, that finally the Demerara Cricket Board (DCB) will be having its election of office-bearers on 2019-08-11 following a Court Order.The prolonged absence of a legitimate Board certainly would have stymied the development of cricket in the county. Additionally, there were dire consequences to the effect that a faction of the DCB suffered tremendously, since players from that faction were denied selection, either to the Demerara squad or in other instances from the national set-up as well.It was quite evident therefore that only a few of the vast pool of budding cricketers were given the opportunities – an unacceptable motive that seemed deliberate.In all of this, the East Coast Cricket Board (ECCB) and the Georgetown Cricket Association (GCA) stood out admirably in the face of defiance, rejection and deprivation of funds to ensure their constituents were playing competitive cricket and being exposed to coaching programmes on a regular basis.It is in this context therefore that Mr Roger Harper and Mr Bissoondyal Singh should be highly commended for their astute leadership and perseverance of the highest order.At this critical time too and with the new dispensation of Cricket West Indies (CWC), I am of the firm conviction that Mr Bissoondyal Singh will be the ideal candidate for the post of president of the DCB with his wealth of institutional knowledge, vast experience as an administrator and generally someone who has the confidence of the majority of stakeholders, who would like to see a transformation in the local cricketing landscape and who will lead the fight in ensuring that our cricketers, umpires, scorers, grounds men etc. are deserving of elevation at the highest level.I therefore would appeal for consensus in electing Mr Singh on Sunday. Yours respectfully,Elroy Stephneylast_img read more
