Dominion shut plant

Dominion Resources Inc. has asked ISO New England to allow it to permanently close the coal- and oil-fired Salem Harbor Power Station in Massachusetts by June 2014.

Dominion previously asked to temporarily remove the 60-year-old plant from the regional electricity market. The ISO has 90 days to determine if it will need the plant to ensure reliable electricity delivery.

The ISO can't force the station to stay open, but it could negotiate a deal with Dominion that sees ratepayers covering needed upgrades to keep it running.
